Make learning fun and interactive! Keeping the kids engaged in their learning adds to the inquiry based learning expectations of the Common Core. This printable, interactive packet contains several activities which focus on identifying the writing and recognizing which genre to write about based upon the key words within a prompt. It is excellent test preparation and keeps the learning interesting and authentic through student led inquiry.
Included in the 27 pages:
10 printable “genre "pockets to cut out and glue into journals
8 prompt examples (with answers) to cut out and categorize into the correct genre pockets.
12 prompt cards to use as an identification game or as actual writing prompt practice.
Genre title cards for categorizing prompt game
I have created this packet with my own 5th graders in mind but it can be adapted to suit 3rd,4th and 6th grades too.
