The One With the Genre Tracker

Last month I finally jumped on the bandwagon and read The Book Whisper.  Needless to say, I fell in love with it and plan to implement Donalyn's strategies in my 7th grade ELA classroom this year.

Earlier this week I sat down and created my own version of what I'm calling the Genre Tracker.  It's a two page graphic organizer that allows students to keep up with how many books they've read from each of the required genres.  I plan to have them glue it into their reading notebooks so that they can add to it throughout the school year.

I have placed my Genre Tracker in my TPT store for free.  Because the idea is not original to me, I do not feel like I can ask anyone to pay me for.  It's there to download if you don't want to have to recreate one.
