WELCOME TO "THE GENRE'S COURT!"
Check it out here.
So, who's watched the show, People's Court??? Well, as I played the theme song, surprisingly, a ton of my 2nd graders started raising their hands in excitement that they knew where it came from!! I had NO idea that they would actually know it!
Well, anyway, I wanted to find a fun way to review genres and expanding it to make them prove it with evidence. Enter, "The Genre's Court!" I actually brought in my college graduation gown to wear as the "Publisher" or judge during the trials! We play the theme song from you tube as I walk into the room and when the "authors" (defendants) and "critics" (plaintiffs) walk in and out of the "courtroom" (classroom).
Throughout the week during book club centers, my students have the chance to fill out a clipboard
I LOVE THIS ACTIVITY!!! MY STUDENTS LOVE IT EVEN MORE (MAYBE :)! They beg me to have genre court! I usually try 1 time a month. I occasionally move books in the wrong bins to make sure there are a variety of genres being used. Sneaky, I know! :)
My whole "The Genre's Court" is in my TPT store if you'd like to check it out!!
Court is dismissed! :)
