PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Please visit my blog: www.CFClassroom.com for daily tips on organization and classroom management as well as lots of pictures of all of my classroom themes.

There are 43 pages in this kit. This purchase includes the following printables to help students understand genres in literature. They are best used with grades 2-6.

POSTERS
Ten 8.5 x 11 inch charts featuring a the name of the genre, a description and images to provide a visual cue using Thistlegirl Designs clipart

TALLY CHARTS
Two tally charts (one to use as a class and one for students to use as individuals). After reading a book, record it using tallies in the appropriate box to track genres.

GENRE BINGO
Students cross off a box after reading a book with the goal of getting 5 boxes in a row, column or diagnoally across. This was deisgned to help encourage your readers to branch out in their selections.

READER RESPONSE SHEETS
Ten pages of response sheets that require students to identify the genre of a book and support it with details from the text.

GENRE GAME & ACTIVITY CARDS
Printable cards designed to be used with the following activities.
NAME THAT GENRE (small group or whole class activity)
Give each student a copy of the genre cards. You may want to select a few at a time. Hold up a book from your classroom library and discuss the features. Instruct the children to hold up the correct card.

GENRE CUBE:
Create a genre cube by attaching the six fiction genre cards onto square boxes or cubes.

GENRE GO FISH:
Print 4 sets of the genre cards. Play the same way as regular Go Fish, however, the students need to ask for a card by describing the genre and the person being asks responds with, "Yes I have (name of genre being described)" or "No, I don't have (name of genre being described)"

GENRE SORT:
Print thumbnails of book covers that are familiar to your class / grade level. Use the genre cards as headers and have the students sort the thumbnail cards into the correct category. Program the answer onto the back to make it self-checking. This activity works great with a pocket chart.

GENRE BOOKMARKS
Printable 2-sided bookmarks.

GENRE MATCH
Use the cards to play Memory/Concentration by matching the genre card to the correct definition card. This also makes an excellent pocket chart activity center.

NAME THAT GENRE
Use the colored genre cards as categories. Have the students sort the description cards into the correct category. To make the activity self-correcting you could write the card numbers on the back of the category cards.


THE GENRE CHALLENGE
A printable page for your students to complete. It encourages them to read a book from each of the genres.

FICTION VS NONFICTION CARDS
Print the cards below. Attach back-to-back using a popsicle stick in the center to create a two-sided sign (or simply have the students hold them up. Pass them out to the students. Hold up a book for the students to see. Read an excerpt from the book. Have the students hold up either the fiction or nonfiction side of the sign to show which they think it is.

I purchased your Genre Unit, but would like the Bingo card in a format other than pdf so that I can change the board. Is that possible? Otherwise all my students will have the same Bingo card. Thanks so much!!

On  February 10, 2013Clutter-Free Classroom answered:
Hi Dawn,
Thank you for your interest in this product! The bingo card with this product was not designed to be used as a traditional bingo game. Students cross off a box after reading a book with the goal of getting 5 boxes in a row, column or diagnoally across. This was designed to help encourage your readers to branch out in their selections.

Thank you!
