I have this thing with Author's Purpose. My class will talk about it all year, but we don't do any crafts with it until it's close to Thanksgiving. Then we make up paper plate pies. The top is the top crust of the pie, the bottom plate is the different pieces with one of these little notes from Dandelions and Dragonflies.
This year I also found these free task cards from Rachael Parlett that hit the spot. Great review!
Then of course the kids had to add something in their ELA notebooks as well, so I used this freebie from Blair Turner.
All in all - they got it! What do you do to review Author's Purpose?
