A way to organize your literature curriculum: Genres.... "Knowledge of different genres gives students useful schemata-frameworks for understanding born of prior knowledge and experience-for story types" (Lynch-Brown, Short, & Tomlinson, p. 247).
Classroom libraries need to contain a multitude of genres, topics, and themes. A core collection is key, but a revolving collection that matches a particular subject or theme should always be included.
Reading Genre posters for ALL grade levels - includes a coordinating set of interactive notebook resources and reference tools for the students to be able to use independently to refer to each genre poster, to each genre's descriptors, as well as to list texts that they read that fall under each genre. These posters are perfect for all elementary school grades
