Clip it! Genres in Reading

Print-and-Use Reading Tool

CLIP IT!

clip itTo help students recognize the distinguishing features of genres, give each child a colorful copy of the provided page. Have him cut out the genre features and glue each one next to the correct genre. When he’s finished, have him cut out the genre guide; fold it in half lengthwise; and glue the back sides together, as shown, to make a bookmark. Also have him fasten a paper clip to the side. Then, each time he reads a different book, have him slide the paper clip up or down to identify the book’s genre. This handy tool will not only mark his page in the book, but it will also help him remember a key feature of each listed genre!

About Lucy Salerno

I have been a resident of Fairfield for over 25 years and have 30 years’ teaching experience in California K – 6 schools. I have been a music teacher, band and choral director, elementary teacher in grades K – 6, a district level technology coordinator teaching, and an elementary school administrator. In 2011, my most recent school, Scandia Elementary, on Travis Air Force Base, was awarded the California Distinguished School Award for work and programs implemented under my watch. Because of my broad educational background, I know and understand what is needed in today's difficult educational environment. I have taught writing to children in numerous grades as a core subject as well as integrating writing into other curricula areas. I retired a few years ago from the Travis Unified School District, I love working with children, and am now dedicating my services and skills in support of your children. Through love and patience, I hope to understand a child's needs, meet them where they are, build self-confidence and develop a life-long love of learning.
