This week I taught Author's Purpose to both my 1st and 2nd graders. I have VERY little bulletin board space so I used the whiteboard by my read aloud area to display these posters as an anchor chart. Please forgive the awful phone pics, I am lucky I managed a pic at all this week! The kids LOVED the PIE acronym! Thanks Cindy for the cute posters that saved me much needed time!
eadworks.org that worked well.
We also read I Wanna Iguana and discussed how the boy was trying to persuade his mom in each letter.
I love Gail Gibbons books so I chose Alligators and Crocodiles as an example of Inform but any nonfiction will work. I also took the opportunity to front load about text features.
We enjoyed Shel Silverstein poems as examples of Entertain. My favorite is "Sick" what is yours?
It was a good week.
