- I used two paper plates. I had a parent volunteer pre-cut paper plates into fourths.
- Each piece of the PIE represented Author's Purpose (Persuade, Inform, Entertain).
- I had them color the pieces of PIE.
- After coloring and writing on each piece then staple all the pieces on to the second paper plate.
- Then the students were given the handout below and had to match the definition and example with the correct Author's Purpose.
Thank you Dandelions and Dragonflies for this great printable.
