Product Description
This is a one page, black and white/grayscale document that describes the different kinds of fiction and non-fiction genres and text types. It can be folded into thirds and used as a reference bookmark for students, or inserted into their reading or homework folders. My reading logs often ask students the genre or source of the book and I found that my students were confused by these questions, or didn't remember the descriptions on my genre wall at school. I created this document with picture clues and some familiar book choices to compare to what they are reading.
Descriptions include:
Fairy Tales
Folk Tales
Tall Tales
Realistic Fiction
Historical Fiction
Science Fiction
Graphic Novels
Also listed are Poetry, Plays, Dramas, Myths, Legends
There is a description of Non-Fiction text (also explained that it is sometimes referred to as Information or Expository Text)
An additional box includes a list of sources (book, magazine, newspaper, webpage, pamphlet, brochure)

This will be a great reference tool for students and parents.
Thanks for looking! Enjoy.
