Author's purpose freebie

This is the first time that I've ever posted for the Friday Freebie, and I'm very excited to be here!  So for my very first freebie, I want share with a simple worksheet/graphic organizer that I used with third grade students to write about the author's purpose.  I had blogged about about my little friends having difficulty with determining the author's purpose.  After a few lessons of modeling and guiding, students listened to a read aloud and wrote about what they think the author is trying to teach them.  I can imagine using this activity with second graders and maybe some first graders who need to be challenged.  Let me know what you think!!
