The 4th and 5th grade students in the After School Learning Connections Program at Diggs Elementary School will embark on 30 days of reading books from various genres. The 30 day reading celebration will begin with a kick-off event, What genres have you read lately? The teacher and students will discuss the various types of genres (fiction, non-fiction, fairy tales, fables, tall tales, science fiction, biographies and autobiographies) During the kick-off event the teacher will showcase at least one book from each genre and highlight the special features/components of each genre. Each student will be given a Reading Around the Genres in 30 Days packet which will have a sheet for each genre with the text features/components of that genre, a list of books from that genre, a reading log sheet for students to record what they have read and a Genre Report Form. Half of the students will be given an opportunity to choose one book from each of the following genres:
4. fairy tales
The students will keep these books for 2 weeks. After the students have read the books they must record what they have read on their reading log and complete a Genre Report Form on each book. The other half of the students will choose books from the following genres and complete the same activites as listed above:
2. tall tales
3. science fiction
Students will also have an opportunity to read additional books from the four genres if they finish early.
After two weeks the students will switch books and read from the other four genres.
After 30 days we will have a Fun With Genres Book Celebration where students will have to decide which genre they enjoyed the most and share why they chose that one as their favorite.
