Genre Trading Cards and Word Wall! This is a set of 16 literary genre trading cards that you can use with your students in any unit dealing with reading or even writing. I originally created them for my ELL students to look like trading cards and soon found that all of my students LOVE using them and are a great tool for teaching all the vocabulary about literary genres!
English + Spanish (A Spanish Literary Genre version is now included for FREE)
This Genre Set includes:
• 16 literary genre trading cards with the word and picture of the type of literary genre on the front and a definition and example on the back.
• The same 16 literary genre cards with the words on them but blank spaces for students to draw their own picture of the type of literary genre and room to write their own definitions and examples.
• 8 blank cards that students can use to add more literary genre terms to as they come across them in their studies.
• A template for a labeled box that students can cut out, write their name on and color to store their literary genre cards in.
• An enlarged set of these cards that you can post in your classroom as a literary genre word wall or bulletin board. As you can see in the thumbnails, these print out on a regular 8 ½ by 11 sheet of paper. There are 2 literary genre words with a picture representing them on each page. You just need to cut them in half and they’re ready to go!
• Trading Card Manual: 15 pages of tips and ideas on how to use these trading cards in your class.
• Spanish Literary Genre set now included for FREE to use with Spanish speaking or bilingual students
I print these literary genre flashcards out double sided on card stock so they look and feel like real trading cards but they work just as well on regular paper. The front of each card has the type of literary genre with its picture. The back has a definition and an example.
The 16 words included in this set of cards are:
• fairy tale
• folk tale
• historical fiction
• realistic fiction
• science fiction
• tall tale
