Want to encourage your students to read a variety of genres? This digital, Google Slides (tm) format is a great way for students to gamify their genre selections, responding to their books through typed responses! When your students finish, they will have read 20 books in 9 different genres, at their own differentiated reading ability and interest.
Students will read a book in the genre listed on each slide, and then write the title and author into the editable text boxes. There is room on the slide for a book summary or other response. I've also provided space for students to add extras, like book covers or videos about the book.
Next they will move to the next slide and read a book in another genre. Nine genres are included in this game, twice each, with two free choice spaces.
I've included instructions in the "speaker's notes" space, but you can edit these to your requirements before sharing the slides with your students.When they finish the game, they will have read 20 books in at least 9 different genres.
This product comes as a link in a PDF file. First, make sure you are signed into the Google account you use for school. Click on the link, and you will be prompted to "Make a Copy." Rename the file to whatever you like. The presentation will be sent directly to your Drive. Share it with your students via Google Classroom (TM), Google Drive (TM) shared folder, or whatever digital learning platform you use.
Your students will enjoy completing slides as they read books and try new genres. You can confer with your students and talk about the books and genres as they read and share their slides with you.
