Determining genres in reading can be difficult for students. Making this instructional flip book will give them added support when learning about the various genres in literature. Students will add their own examples to each genre, making this a true learning activity. Included are the instructions for assembling the flip book, templates for making the small booklet using index cards, practice cards that can be used in a literacy center or for a quick grade, and an answer key for the assessment cards. Students can keep the booklet they make for a handy reference throughout the year.
