Author's Purpose

Author's Purpose

In second and third grade, students begin to move beyond simply reading words on a page and start to explore why they were written. This worksheet helps children to identify an author’s purpose. By determining whether the author’s purpose was to inform, entertain, or persuade, children will be better able to understand how to read nonfiction and determine the author’s purpose.
