This is a GENRE ADD-ON pack to my Personal Reference Rings: Mini Anchor Charts listing. Specific categories of reference cards will be available as stand-alone add-on packs, designed to help you pick and choose exactly the cards you need.
This set includes 14 reference cards: one general genre chart, and 13 individual genre cards. The cards are color-coded as either fiction or non-fiction. Please see the preview file for a closer look at each card.
In addition to the original 4 per page version, I have updated this file to also include FULL PAGE VERSIONS of each reference card. While the smaller versions are perfect for creating personal reference rings, the full page versions can be hung around the room for reference!
I have added 2 heading cards - "fiction genres" and "non-fiction genres" in both full page and 4 per page versions.
The concept behind the Personal Reference Rings:
I used to spend big money every year at the teaching supply store on desktop helpers and reference folders. However, after a while I realized that these pricey “tools” weren’t all that effective for many of my students. There are very few one-size-fits-all solutions for students. I needed something that was more flexible, allowing me to target each student’s individual needs and provide each student with the tools he or she needed - regardless of whether or not those tools happened to be on the store-bought version. My students always had a wide range of needs - some were advanced learners, some were ELLs, some were on IEPs, some struggled with math topics, some needed spelling inventories, while others still needed basic decoding intervention. I created these personal reference rings as a way to put everything each student needed right at their fingertips.
