Supernatural Fiction Supernatural fiction (properly, "supernaturalist fiction") is a literary genre exploiting or requiring as plot devices or themes some contradictions of the commonplace natural world and materialist assumptions about it. In its broadest definition, supernatural fiction includes examples of weird fiction, horror fiction, fantasy fiction, and such sub-genres as vampire literature and the ghost story. Elements of supernatural fiction can be found in writing from genres such as science fiction. Amongst academics, readers and collectors, however, supernatural fiction is often classed as a discrete genre defined by the elimination of "horror", "fantasy" and elements important to other genres. The one genre supernatural fiction appears to embrace in its entirety is the traditional ghost story. In the twentieth century, supernatural fiction became associated with psychological fiction. The result is that the supernatural is only one possible explanation for what has been described.

So, props to Poe.

I made two, one for "before lunch" which is our literacy block and one for "after lunch" which is math, social studies and skills. I used Mod Podge to put the colored papers on the popsicle sticks and it worked great!
