Teaching Author's Purpose takes a lot of practice. This packet is designed with many sheets for you to use, and some ideas & lessons you can tweak to your own grade level, school, and/or content area.
This packet contains 5 "posters" with visual examples of inform, explain, describe, persuade, and entertain, & a sheet of resource suggestions if needed. It also includes an "investigating intent" activity with spy "glasses". Finally, there are 2 different worksheets at the end for use during the unit!
I hope you enjoy! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns! Also, please remember to leave feedback if you like this Pack! :)

Hello Friends! My name is Jillian, and I have been teaching 2nd grade for 3 years now! I teach in a general education classroom, help struggling readers during "intervention block", and I am also a tutor "after hours"-- so I've come to learn many tricks of the trade with the wide range of kiddos that I work with! I love to "tinker around" alot! Playing on the computer while creating useful resources is kind of my thing! Nothing brings me more joy than to produce something fun and beneficial for the students I work with!
I hope you enjoy my products. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or even suggestions! I'm always open to new ideas, and I'm always willing to make custom products!
