They look at vocabulary that is common to mystery stories before reading and responding to mystery chapter books. Working in guided reading groups, they act as detectives to complete case files while paying attention to details in readings.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
