Writing Author's Purpose

Write in all three authorial purposes (persuasive, informational, entertaining) with this lesson. Young writers consider a time when a friend of theirs helped them out and gave them advice on something. They write a short paragraph (no more than 5 sentences) about what the friend did to help. Use this opportunity to practice formal writing style as well.
