I am extremely excited to share my genre posters and matching book bin labels with you all!! You can use them as you see fit, but here is the system I use to give you an example! (Make sure to download the preview to get a closer look at both!:)
In my classroom library, I color coordinate book bins and genres. With these genre posters, you will find very kid friendly, simplistic definitions that are clear and concise for their levels. The fiction genres all have a red border that corresponds with my red book bins. The nonfiction genres have an orange border, and poetry has a yellow border. Along with matching the colors with the genres, I use the same color stickers for each genre and mark them with the letters on the genre posters for each genre. I display these posters near my library so they are easily accessible and readable for my students. I absolutely LOVE how these have turned out and how they are used in my room!!
The matching book bin labels do the same thing except I left off the definitions.
This system is a great way to expose your students to the different genres and if they're fiction, nonfiction or poetry! The consistency in color works great to keep the system efficient.
Our genre studies leads my room to "The Genre's Court." This court convenes when a book is put into the wrong book bin or a student believes that a book should be under a different genre! We set the whole room up as a courthouse! Make sure to check this out!! The kids BEG to go to "The Genre's Court!"
