I teach first grade, and I love Beth Newingham's genre posters. For Reading Workshop, I ask the students to color a square for the day of the general genre they read (fiction, non-fiction, or poetry) in a reading log. During class readings, we discuss a book's genre more in-depth (it's realistic fiction if it could really happen, but it's fantasy if it couldn't, etc).
So my question is... Do you think all of the posters on Beth's site (http://hill.troy.k12.mi.us/staff/bne...eb3/Genres.htm
) would be appropriate to introduce and to hang in the library? I'd still probably keep the students responsible for independently recording just fiction/nonfiction/poetry, but discuss the genres as a class as we read together.
