Understanding the Author's Purpose

Understanding the Author's Purpose

Your child is learning about a key reading comprehension strategy: why an author writes a piece of text. You can help your child understand the concept of the author's purpose by engaging in a fun writing activity together, such as writing a funny poem. Then, ask your child whether they think the purpose of this silly text is to persuade, inform, or entertain.
Your fourth graders have been immersed in various types of text by this point in their school year. Refer back to some of these texts to help your students grasp how to identify the author's purpose. Choose a reading comprehension activity that incorporates the acronym PIE (persuade, inform, entertain), but be sure to remind your students that they may need to dig even deeper to find other reasons authors write certain texts.

Introduction to Literary Essays

Introduction to Literary Essays

Remind your young writer that they have been practicing how to find "big" ideas while reading stories. Have your child discuss these important ideas by inquiring about the theme and characters from one of their favorite books. These types of responses are the foundation for writing a literary essay, which is addressed in this week's activity selections.
When introducing your young writers to literary essay writing, emphasize the similarities between this genre and one they're most likely familiar with—persuasive writing. The structures share many commonalities! Select an activity that guides students towards metacognition; reflective thinking leads to noticing "big ideas," which is a necessary skill when kids set out to draft a literary essay.
