This year our school's theme is "Jammin with Genres". Therefore, I wanted to create groups based on a genre. I have created six different genres with a specific book character to go along with that genre. I have a larger circle size group label that can be hung above the group's desk. I also included two small rectangular labels that can be attached onto the sides of bins for your group.
The following genre and characters are included:
Fiction - Captain Underpants
Mystery - Cam Jansen and Encyclopedia Brown
Poetry - Cat in the Hat
Realistic Fiction - Junie B. Jones and Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Fantasy - Harry Potter
Science Fiction - Magic School Bus
Using these will give me different ways to call my groups. For instance I may call poetry to line up first or Team 3 to come to the carpet or Harry Potter to answer first, etc. The possibilities are endless with this and I hope you enjoy!
