This resource is designed to be use as a reading incentive in the classroom. Children choose genres in order to earn badges.
I have had coworkers staple them to boards in their rooms next to the names of children. In my own classroom, I use paper chains and hang them across the ceiling like vines. Each genre gets its own colour of paper and children earn a chain link every time they finish a book. Once they have four chain links, they earn a badge.
The room ends up looking awesome, and is evidence of all of the books being read when anyone asks! Very cool.
Blank anchor charts are also included to complete with your class if that is what you'd prefer.
