This product was created to help introduce or review reading genres with our students. We typically use it at the beginning of the school year to give our students a hands on activity to assist them in familiarizing with the different genres they will encounter throughout reading workshop. After several read alouds and discussions about genres, we incorporate this lesson. However, you could use this activity during the introduction of individual units of study. We included a varying list of fiction and nonfiction books alphabetized by book titles to help you get started. However, you could use books directly from your own classroom library.
