This resource is a perfect for both stations and independent work. The product includes 16 task cards and an answer sheet where the student must identify the genre and explain their reasoning. To make sure the cards hold up for years to come, I recommend printing the cards on card stock and laminating them. I have had mine for 3 years, and they are still in good condition.
P.S. The polka dots in the background DO NOT print out as dark as in the thumbnails.
