Frequent readers of my blog know that I make sure that I teach reading and writing skills across genre. (For more on my Teaching Genre products click here and here.)
Today's freebie is a Genre Sort that I use with my students in our classroom library. I use these four definitions when I introduce Realistic Contemporary Fiction, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, and Fantasy. I have students find and record examples on the form. I find that it is a good formative assessment of my students understanding of the books in our library. It also gets them into a book that they might not have seen before.
I hope you enjoy Genre Sort with your students. Thank you to my Facebook Page followers for helping me choose this week's freebie.
