Here are some literary genre cards that I made up.
I plan on having a display of these in my classroom, adding a new genre to the display each time one is introduced. This will ensure that students are familiar with the characteristics of each genre, because they will have firsthand experience with each one.
These are all 5x7 cards. I print them on photopaper (at Costco) as 5x7's and then laminate them. At Costco, a 5x7 is only $0.39!
Feel free to use them!
