Author's Purpose with Scholastic

Teach Author's Purpose by using Scholastic book flyers. Cut book covers that correspond with each purpose. Freebie included
First post of the new year! I am linking up with Nicole and Eliceo for the January I Teach Second link up. 

I want to share a high interest activity to review author's purpose.  After getting acquainted with the three main author's purposes, we used old Scholastic book orders to identify books with each purpose. I gave them labels and they sectioned their construction paper into thirds. We did the persuasive books together, as guided modeling, and plus, they didn't really know a lot of the books in there and without seeing, it's hard to tell what's persuasive and what's not. But inform and entertain, they did on their own. You could figure out by the description and the cover pictures which was which. 
Have left over Scholastic flyers? Don't throw them out! Instead, use them to teach Author's Purpose. Find out how!

Before cutting, they had to go through the whole magazine and circle the books they wanted to cut. Next to the picture, I had them write I, E, or P and before they cut, I went around and checked to make sure they were on target. Sometimes I asked them to explain why they chose the specific purpose based on the cover and title of the picture. 




You can grab the labels for this project HERE.
