I'm so tired of hearing that the character is "Nice" Classroom: Reading / Writing. Character Traits grouped with similar traits. Use to compare and contrast. What are the subtle differences? Would be great to transfer these into a web organizer.
Included in this post is a reading genres poster. This poster is designed to help students identify different genres. Additionally, the poster compares genres and encourages students to explore new genres.
I used this poster as a model for an anchor chart. The students gave me ideas for the labels with my "help." I have launched many reading lessons off this poster. it's a visual reminder for my students.
