Another Pinner wrote: Reading Genres Poster - I like the concept of this, but the choice of colors is confusing. I think I'll make one for our 8th grade genres that makes a bit more sense. I'd like the students to be able to place the "pencil" similarities as well.
We've created some simple genre posters to display in your classroom. Each one has the definition of the genre and some examples. This is a good visual way to remind your students to vary their reading during workshop. You can refer to them in conferences and even have your students sort their books according to them!
Teaching Fiction Genres...I think I would have this begin as a working Tree Map and this could be my "Take It Off the Map" activity when we had completed all genres. I might also extend it to include having students find a picture of a book cover to incorporate and draw conclusions about those that might prefer to read each type of fiction.
