On Pinterest recently I saw a neat activite that a teacher did in teaching author's purpose. She had her students cut out the pictures from a Scholastic Book Club order form and determine if they were to entertain the reader or inform. I wanted to do the same thing in my classroom with my students who were studying author's purpose.
I wanted to create a nice display for their work. Since it is winter time, I was able to find a mitten pattern. I labeled each mitten entertain or inform.
I then hole punched the mittens and strung them together. I hung them over a line in my classroom as a display. The students really enjoyed doing this activity.
