The first Reading Detective Lesson was all about getting familiar with the ingredients of a mystery. We discussed characters we will encounter in the mystery genre, paying special attention to the differences between a victim and a suspect. We also explored some common vocabulary terms found in mysteries, such as alibi, red herring, clues, evidence and witness.
After discussing the vocabulary terms, we visited Mystery Net Kids Mysteries. Here you will find many short mysteries under the Solve It category. After reading the mysteries, you can choose who you think committed the crime.
I still have to visit the library for a Cam Jansen book before our next lesson.
