Print and Digital! These 23 posters are a wonderful reference for introducing and increasing understanding of different genres. They contain a brief definition and a helpful picture. Print, laminate, and display them!

Small cards are also included (identical to the posters), which are helpful during guided reading, one-on-one, and independent reading. These can be laminated, cut out, hole-punched, and placed on a ring. These cards can also be used for book bin or library labels, and they can even be used in a sorting activity (spread them out and group similar genres together or even make a genre “tree” – see the preview for an example). Note: The posters are one full page each, and the cards are small (9 per page).

Purchasing this resource will enable you to download the traditional PDF version to be printed as well as have access to a digital version to be used with Google Classroom™ or any LMS (through TpT's digital tool, Easel)! This way, students can have access to these posters on a device at home or in the classroom. I have already prepared a student digital version of this resource for your convenience (deleted teacher pages, added instructions and text boxes, etc.). But you can also make your own changes (in terms of adding instructions and text boxes, etc., but note the content of the pages is not editable). For more information about how TpT's digital tool Easel works, please click here! Also check out the preview above for a glimpse of this digital version!
