Life in First Grade: Author's Purpose we recite with gestures "an author writes a story for a purpose. To persuade us (making begging gesture), to inform us (point to head), or to entertain us (gesture a big smile).
Students can cut and paste the author's purpose to the title of book/advertisement! They'll learn and have fun doing this activity! This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs United States License.
