This genre activity is a simple, visual clip chart that holds students accountable for identifying the genre of their independent reading books. It is a great way for your students to see trends in the types of genres they are drawn to, which is also helpful to you, as the teacher, to learn more about your readers.

It prints on 4 standard 8.5” by 11” pages that are taped together. This works great either hung up where students move their named clothes pin, or on a magnetic surface where students can move their magnetic name.

The clip chart also comes in 2 options: one with a visual for each genre and one without.
