Power of Persuasion

In Grade 4 we have spent the last month or so learning about an author’s purpose for writing. We’ve learned all about P – I – E! (That means Persuade, Inform, or Entertain) After enjoying listening to lots of books and discussing the author’s purpose, we have delved a little deeper into persuasive writing.

While we are busy working on a fantastic persuasive essay, we have also been practicing our convincing skills in class. We have worked in partners to practice persuading our moms and dads to stay up late or get a new iPod (sorry, parents!) and have also tried out debating issues that are current for Grade 4 students. Below are some pictures of us in our heated debates!
