This is a brilliant resource. I have a 1/2 class and will be able to adapt this. This is a great starting point for many studies of genre, especially utilising a bulk loan from the library. Thankyou

This was a very well thought out lesson that gives the basic introduction to genres for my 3rd grade students. I have not done all of it yet but am really liking the activities related. THANK YOU!

This is wonderful. I wanted something more simple than what was using to show different genres and literary elements in homeschooling. This is perfect. Thank you so much!
