PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are TWO options for using these cards, depending on your needs! You can also use both sets for scaffolding and differentiation.

Set One: One story per card for identifying the genre of each story.

Set Two: Two stories per card for comparing stories in the same genre. Each card includes two stories (the SAME STORIES that are also in set one) written in the same genre.
