The "Genre of the Month" project is a year-long reading project. It helps students explore different genres of literature in a fun and engaging way. Each month, the students read a book of their choice from the genre of the month. Then, they either complete a project of their choice or give a book talk to their classmates. Overall, this project not only encourages students to read a variety of selections on their own; it also helps students share titles with their classmates. This project works well with Accelerated Reader as well.
