Let's Shed Some Light on the Author's Purpose
We also had some fun with Author's Purpose. Last week, we reviewed the author's purpose for writing the story. In guided reading groups, we read our story. Each student received a Christmas light pattern. Students used their leveled reader to determine the author's purpose. They then had to use text evidence from the story to support their answer. We then hung up our lights on our tree for our hallway.
