PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Genre Posters + Individual Genre Reference page!

These colorful posters will help your students readily identify various genres in literature in a fun way. Use them to sort your classroom library books into different areas, or just use them as a reference in your library.

Genres included are:
Informational & Expository Text, Fantasy, Mystery, Poetry, Biography, Realistic Fiction, Autobiography, Historical Fiction, Traditional Literature, & Science Fiction.

There is an individual genre reference page included as well!

ALSO INCLUDED..., the individual reference page is great to help young children learn to choose a variety of books and it is simple and easy for them to use. I print enough copies for the entire class in color. I then put the reference page into a sheet protector that goes into a durable, plastic folder for each child. (I keep the folders with the reference pages for next year's class so I don't have to copy from year to year)... The students refer to this page when they write down the names of books that they have read. They also graph their reading so they can see if they tend to read from the same genre too much or if they do a good job of reading a variety of materials. It is also a good way for me to monitor their reading and allows me to make suggestions based on what they have read.

These look fantastic - just what I was trying to figure out how to do myself (whenever I found the time). Thankyou. They will look great in the library and I'm sure the visual input will be more meaningful.

I am having the same problem as described below: The individual genre posters and the text box in the middle of each poster is blank, where the definition should be. I'm using a Mac. I normally don't have trouble w/ PDFs. The poster w/ all genres on one sheet looks fine... not sure what I should try to do to fix it.
What is the problem and solution? Thank you.

On  August 14, 2012Hilary Lewis answered:
Are you opening the document in 'Preview' on your Mac? If you are, then open it with the Adobe program, not preview. You should also be able to print from a Windows machine. That should get you all fixed up.

I just downloaded these posters and they are not as advertised. The way the preview is shown, they have a complete type-written description on each individual poster. When I downloaded them, they were blank where the description should be. I love the posters as the preview shows (and the first page of the document itself), but that's not what I received. I was wondering if you could email them to me. Also, do you have them oriented in landscape?

Are you opening the document in 'Preview' on your Mac? If you are, then open it with the Adobe program, not preview. You should also be able to print from a Windows machine. That should get you all fixed up. I am sorry I don't have a landscape set.

At the top of the page on this TpT site there is a tab that says 'My Purchases' Click on that and it will take you to another page...you will need to scroll down a little bit and you will see a pic of the products. Click the 'download now' button and it will begin to download.
Thanks

Hello Hilary,

I have a quick question before purchasing some of your poster projects. When you say "poster" do you copy these onto larger sheets of paper than the normal 8 1/2 x 11? If so, do you do your own, go somewhere to have them copied or any other explanation? When downloading, are they larger than normal size? I would appreciate knowing.

Thanks,
Karen

Hi Karen,
I do not print them larger than 8 1/2 x 11...I just printed them on that size tag and laminated them. Sorry for the confusion! Happy New Year!

I'm having trouble with the individual genre posters. The text box in the middle of each poster is blank, where the definition should be. I'm using a Mac. I normally don't have trouble w/ PDFs. The poster w/ all genres on one sheet looks fine... not sure what I should try to do to fix it.
Any suggestions?
Best,
Sara Miller

I have a Mac and have had a little trouble with PDFs from time to time...1. Have you updated your adobe acrobat? 2. Can you try to open it on a windows machine? I just downloaded on my Mac and I can see it...I'm not sure. If you continue to have trouble, just email me at hilary35@Mac.com and I will email it to you directly. Sorry about your trouble! Let me know! Thank you so much for checking out and buying my items! :)
