|Detective Case File|
We are going to do a project for the month of October called Reading Detectives. With this project I will be introducing Alexis to Mystery stories. The goal is to build vocabulary and critical thinking skills. I found a free Unit Lesson Plan and printables on the Scholastic website and on Mrs. Pearce's Classroom Website.
The printables include a Detective's Dictionary, Detective's Case Report, and Suspect List.
I think we will start out with Young Cam Jansen books. They are level 2 readers so the plot should not be too overwhelming. Also, Cam Jansen is a girl detective and that is cool! I think this will be a fun project for October.
Does anyone have any suggestions for easy to read mystery books with simple plots? or mystery picture books?
