This mini-book is intended to help students learn about the different reading genres. They can use this mini-book to be “detectives” in finding books that are examples of each genre, as well as for taking notes about the characteristics and definitions of each genre.
Genres included in this mini-book are:
Fiction- Traditional Literature, Realistic Fiction, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Nonfiction- Informational, Biography, Autobiography, Memoir
*You can use as many or as few pages as you need for your particular grade level.
*Each genre is half a page, except traditional literature because so many different types of stories are under this umbrella.
*Within Traditional Literature you will find: folk tale, fairy tale, tall tale, legend, myth, fable.
*There is an answer key for the teachers. Each genre graphic organizer has been filled out including the definition, elements of the genre, and examples to help the teacher. :)
*There are checklists that students can fill out while the teacher is reading a book (or after) to determine the genre of the book.
*This packet also includes ideas that you can do in your classroom with reading genres.
