• Each card contains four pictures that relate to a specific genre.
Students use the clues and number of letter spaces to guess the genre. Each card is presented in three formats: 1) with the pictures and appropriate number of spaces to spell the genre; 2) pictures and some of the letters filled in; and 3) pictures and the genre.
• These cards are quite versatile! Project them for the whole class to see or print for centers or bulletin boards. Use them as a way to gauge prior knowledge and introduce genre studies to your class. Use them as a culminating activity and informal assessment. You can even use them to inspire your students to create their own!
