    idea of genre
    By Love3rdGrade

    You might want to introduce the whole idea of genres to your students as a lesson near the beggining of the year. I printed out her posters and laminated them for my room. Our reading series does genre focus throughout the year but in the beginning of the year I talk about how books are categorized. Then I show the posters one by one and discuss them and the kids chime in saying "I know that book." or we brainstorm books or stories that fit the genre. Then I challenge them to read different genres from our library. You could post them in your room near your own library for them to use as a reference and make sure that you as the kids about what genres they are reading.
