This week we're talking all about the author's purpose. When we talk about the author's purpose for writing, we're talking about PIE: persuade, inform and entertain. Here are the slides from Morning Message that I've used to help support my instruction.
We're reading a variety of books together this week to explore the different purposes author's have for writing.
We also have a set of reference posters in the room to help us remember that pie isn't just for dessert anymore!
