This is a collection of 18 stories from different fiction genres: realistic fiction, fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, mystery and folktale. It was enhanced for a fifth-grade group that didn't understand the finer nuances of the different types of fiction genres. It contains the stories, as well as two different types of simple student response forms. You can use the individual stories for many things, even small-group reading practice...not just for genre study. Originally, the plan was to have the students work in groups of 2 and read aloud to each other, then answer the questions.
