This PowerPoint presentation starts with students first becoming familiar with categorizing familiar objects into categories and sub-categories. It then relates this idea to books and how books can be categorized into genres and sub-genres. This PowerPoint just focuses on the 5 main genres: Fiction, Nonfiction, Folklore, Drama, and Poetry. It incorporates interactive activities for the students and opportunities for participation! The last activity is a genre sort using pictures and book summaries from popular, relevant books that students can look forward to reading this year!
*Note: Use the last 12 slides to print out and give to groups or partners to complete the activity. Includes 12 book descriptions.
