Download the preview to see the thirteen Genre Study Book Reports. These materials can be used all year long. They're perfect for state test prep because they align exactly with reading common core standards.
The purpose of Genre Study Book Reports is to:
•Individualize reading - giving students the responsibility and freedom to explore books
•Encourage students to understand, differentiate, and explore multiple genres
•Allow students to choose books at their “just right” level
•Push students to think more critically about their reading
•Expect students to work independently (while the teacher conferences or assesses others)
•Assess comprehension for student self-selected books
•Provide students with daily practice - fiction and nonfiction - of reading skills tested annually by the state (CCSS)
•Know that students can learn, practice, and enjoy reading ALL at the same time ☺
This item includes 13 Genre Study Book Reports and bulletin board lettering “Happiness is books!”
The following Genre Study Book Reports are included:
Fictional Text (Any)
Nonfiction Text (Any)
Genre Book Reports can be used to individualize instruction, for small-group instruction, whole-group instruction, and book clubs too.
Additionally, reading conferences can be tied to the book reports. Choose 3-5 cells from a genre study worksheet. Use the report to engage the student in an authentic reading conversation. Record notes and observations directly on the worksheet. The Genre Book Reports provide the evidence needed to accurately assess student reading. Save the worksheets and you will have a record of each student’s books, authors, comprehension, genres explored, book level, number of pages read, and effort.
These Genre Study Book Reports are also available as part of a comprehensive ELA package. The package bundles together several reading items and includes all necessary classroom and student support materials. Take a look!
