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.

Lesson Planet has helped me give some great extending activities that I hadn't thought of before. It has also helped me be able to deliver a quality lesson when life gets busy, when I'm forced to be on the fly and not as prepared as I'd like to be.
