This resource will serve as a great teaching tool when your students are learning about characteristics of the following genres: folk tales, tall tales, legends, and fables
- an instructional Powerpoint that teaches the key characteristics of each of the genres listed above
- a set of student fill-in-the-blank worksheets that directly matches the PowerPoint (I'm also attaching them as a PowerPoint, so that you can print them as slides, (2 per page), if you want students to cut them out and glue them in their Reader's Workshop journals.)
In my own class, I handed out the student fill-in-the-blank worksheets and had students take notes as I walked through the PowerPoint. I would also stop and show real examples of texts within each genre.
I hope you find this useful in your genre studies! Thank you for stopping by my shop!
