This genre study printable is aligned with third grade TEKS in Texas, but includes genre that are useful and represent a good sampling needed by kids to read widely.
It includes 17 student pages for recording characteristics of these genre:
Biography & Autobiography
It includes places for students to record characteristics in a variety of formats, including charts, venn diagrams, and simple boxes.
Also included is one page of teacher tips to help you consider the best way to use this in your classroom.
A variety of teaching documents and tools designed to make your teaching life better! Center and station activities, reader's theater scripts, classroom posters, file folder games, and other printables are available for any content area. Teaching tools are designed primarily for second, third, and fourth grade, although many documents (especially the math and reading activities) would be useful in first grade too. My students love using these colorful and engaging materials!
