This genre resource includes 18 half-page colorful genre posters, black and white note-taking printables that can be copied and glued into your students’ ELA notebooks for reference, and genre-based writing prompts.
The following genres are included: fiction, fantasy, realistic fiction, historical fiction, mystery, drama, folktale, fable, tall tale, fairy tale, legend, myth, nonfiction, informational, biography, autobiography, poetry, reference
Posters are great for a bulletin board or for labeling different areas of your classroom bookshelves.
After gluing in the reference page genre definition and visual cue into their notebooks, students list books they have read in the genre. I like to brainstorm a few examples together and then encourage my students to return to the page and add additional examples as they read them.
Writing prompts ask students to give an example of a book in a given genre and give evidence from the text or illustrations and text to support their claim. Two printable page options for each genre and mixed practice options are included.
