This resource includes 10 genre study posters for display in your classroom. While I generally find having posters with a lot of words on the walls to be distracting, I love having up my genre study posters. Never in the year do I have to teach my students about each of the genres. Throughout the year as we read different texts we read the description on the posters and decide what genre the text we are reading fits into. These posters make teaching genre in an authentic way quick and simple!
Times when I ask students to refer to the posters:
- during 1-on-1 reading I ask them to decide which category their book best fits into
- during read aloud
- as part of our daily "question of the day"
- during group reads
- current events
- whenever the opportunity arises!
This resource includes posters for the following Genres:
- Realistic Fiction
- Traditional Literature
- Historical Fiction
- Science Fiction
