Author's Purpose, Gift of Reading Blog Hop Stop #16


Welcome to This Little Piggy Reads.  You have arrived at  

At each blog stop, you will be gathering Reading gifts and freebies.  In each post you will find a picture of a snowman with a letter on it. Collect all of the letters, solve the mystery quote and enter the giveaway.  Record all of the letters on your recording sheet and follow each blog along the way so that you can enter the amazing giveaway at the end!

Author's Purpose is a tricky topic for young readers.  As our classrooms integrate more technology, this skill becomes increasingly important.  Mastering Author's Purpose requires students to read critically.  
Students will use this topic throughout their educational career when doing research. 

The Holiday Season is the perfect time to teach Author's Purpose!  Adults and kids are inundated with ads.  They are literally everywhere we turn.  Sales flyers for Christmas dinner, commercials for toys, radio ads for store sales, billboards and now we have internet ads.  Be sure to expose your students to a variety of media and books.  

Do you need a PIE anchor chart?  This is the one I used last year.
