Product Description

The Genre Study is a wonderful and unique way for the kids to learn about different genres. They use a passport and stamps to record their reading while exploring all the genres. There is a colorful bulletin board activity where kids post the covers of the books they read under the appropriate genre poster. Colorful bookmarks explain the different genres and give examples. They are a handy reference for the kids, plus they are cute and the kids love them! Task cards and flash activities can be used for centers or partner work.

The kids complete a one page book report for each genre. Each book report is unique to the specific genre. On most reports the students will explain how they know what genre it is. There are questions requiring students to cite evidence from the text about character traits, problem/solution, author’s purpose, text features, visualizing, summarizing and creating a timeline. This resource is designed to be used by teachers, librarians and homeschoolers.

These are the genres covered in this resource:

Realistic Fiction, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy

Folk Tales - Fairy Tales, Tall Tales, Myths, Fables

Informational and Biography

Poetry - Rhymes, Haiku

This makes a great end of year activity!

If you’re an individual educator or a school representative purchasing a Non-Transferable License, your license is Non-Transferable. This means only you or the educator this license was purchased for may use it, and the license cannot be reused by another teacher.

If you represent a school purchasing a Transferable License, your license is transferable. This means only one educator may use the resource at a time, and if you experience personnel changes year over year or during the year, you may transfer the license to another educator in your school.
