Author's Purpose and Research Writing

We had some fun this week learning about author's purpose.

We played the pie game...serving pies with different titles on to the correct author's purpose plate.

We also read some short stories and worked together to decide the author's purpose.  They used the iPads to scan a QR code to check their answers!

In writing we began researching penguins.  They were split into groups and each group was assigned a different penguin to research. The final project will be a poster with all of their information!

It was a great week of learning!
