Print-and-Use Reading Tool
To 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!
