This resource includes a persuasive letter written from the point of view of a turkey! I used it with my students to review the author's purpose (particularly of persuasion). It also includes comprehension questions to assess author's purpose, main idea, supporting details, and context clues.
What's the difference between a good and bad persuasive letter? Kids will find out here when they are presented with two very clear examples: one is a lacklustre letter of persuasion followed by a very powerful example of persuasive writing.
