I just love anchor charts so I’m linking up again with Deb from Crafting Connections for:
an author's purpose anchor chart that connect author's purpose with the reader's job, use to teaching reading comoprehension in the elementary classroom
This week my anchor is about author’s purpose.
There’s no sense in looking for the author’s purpose just to look for the author’s purpose.  If we can figure out the author’s purpose, then we can read purposefully.  If kids pick up a nonfiction book about weather, they may determine from the cover and the table of contents that the author’s purpose is to inform.  But then what?  The next step is for them to think, “The author wrote this to inform me, I should be looking for facts and information.”
The reader’s job and the author’s purpose fit together like puzzle pieces!
