Eight Writing Genres - Sort and Display

Eight Writing Genres - Sort and Display

Eight writing genre headers to display around the classroom underneath an example of each piece of student work. Below is a simple example of each in a few sentences based on a stretch my class learned in their P.E class. The children sorted the short pieces of writing by pairing them with each of the 8 writing genres. This was a great activity to get them to think about the different writing genres we will be working on this year and how each is different.
