Writing Genres Freebies! (and new TPT account)

Are you looking to get your students writing more creatively? Are you tired of personal narratives and persuasive writing? Maybe it's time to focus on other genres. 

Download my writing fables, fairy tales, folktales, legends, and myths genres posters for free by clicking on the fables page to take you to Google Docs or click the link underneath to download it free from my new Teachers Pay Teachers page (hopefully it will be embedded soon). 
**It's free - all I ask is that you follow my blog or leave a comment if you don't have one of your own!**

Check out the American Folklore blog for text of each of these types of genres.
