This free product facilitates the creation of a strongly visual and interactive center to help students distinguish between genres. It contains 18 posters, each defining a different literary genre. The descriptions are clear and simple so that elementary students can easily understand them.
Decide where you would like to set up your genres. If you have enough room, use a long rectangular table. If not, use a counter or extra student desks. For those who have really limited space, you can create genre baskets instead. Choose which genre(s) you would like to study and display the corresponding poster(s).
The different genres included are:
Adventure, Autobiography, Biography, Fable, Fairy Tale, Fiction, Ghost Story, Historical Fiction, Humor, Informational, Legend, Make Believe, Mystery, Myth, Nonfiction, Poetry, Realistic Fiction, and Science Fiction
