Author's Purpose Stop Motion Project

Last week we learned about author's purpose.  Today, to reinforce our learning...and to have a little fun, we created stop motion videos! 

First, we learned that authors write to persuade, inform, or entertain readers.

The kids were paired up and drew an author's purpose note from a bag. Then, the kids worked with their partner to write a story or article that went with the chosen author's purpose.

Finally, the groups created a stop motion video using backgrounds and props that they created.  They also used little Lego characters to complete their videos.  After creating the video, they recorded the stories they wrote. 
For our first attempt at creating videos, everyone did a great job!

Check out our videos for Mrs. Wagner's Homeroom Class!

Can you guess what the author's purpose is for each video?
