Are you looking for a way to encourage your students to read different genres? If so, this tool is for you!
This tools gives students a chance to earn different badges for the different genres they read. This pack includes:
-10 different genre badges (nonfiction, historical fiction, realistic fiction, mystery, biography, folktales, fairy tales, science fiction, fantasy, and poetry.)
-Reading log for easy tracking
During guided reading, I have my students fill in a reading log to keep track of the books and different genres they have read. I check their reading logs when I meet with them during small group instruction. After a student finishes reading a book, I ask them a couple of questions to check their comprehension. If I feel that the student truly read the book, I will give them a star beside it on the reading log. To earn a badge, they have to read two books from that genre. Once they earn a badge, they just glue it to their bookmark. They use this this book mark all year. When a student has earned all of the badges, I laminate it for them as a reward.
I love using this system in my classroom because it encourages my students to try different genres. Plus, it gives reluctant readers something to work for.
