26 Children's Literary Genres

I was planning for next week and realized that I keep making posters for each genre of literature that I am teaching each week.  I know there are some posters already out there but I also wanted some other resources like bookmarks and journal glossary cards.  So I decided to make a big ol' pack of resources to teach 26 of the children's literary genres.  I found the cutest clip art and have to say that the posters turned out super cute!  For each genre I made an instructional poster, a bookmark and a journal card for our writing journal glossaries. Here's a list of all the genres included:
Fiction
Drama
Fable
Fairy Tale
Fantasy
Folktale
Historical Fiction
Horror
Humor
Legend
Mystery
Mythology
Poetry
Realistic Fiction
Science Fiction
Short Story
Tall Tale
Non-Fiction
Biography
Autobiography
Essay
Narrative Non-Fiction
Speech
Recipe
How-To
Pourquoi Tale
You can check out the pack by clicking the picture below.
I would love to give away a FREE copy but I know it's not fair to always say the first person who comments soooo...comment below on your FAVORITE literary genre and I will choose a winner tomorrow night using the random number generator.  My favorite is fairy tales : )
