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!
