Manic Monday Freebie!

Happy Monday!  Today we started our new literature unit “Reading Across the Genres.”  We created a freebie packet to introduce book genres to our kiddos.  Using a shopping theme, we’re working on showing the kids how to “shop across the genres” when selecting books for their book boxes.  To begin this week, we’re making an anchor chart to intro each genre and notice/discuss characteristics of each genre.  With Dr. Seuss’ birthday coming up, we’ll definitely use one of his books for fiction and also a story of his life for biography.


  1. I love the anchor charts! Thanks so much for sharing Tamra and Sarah. I found your blog through Manic Monday, and I'm your newest follower :)
