I love using jars for workstations because they are easy for students to take to their seat, don’t take up much space and are just fun!!
The Book Detective Jar is a great way for students to explore books while looking for Common Core concepts. I tried to hit most ELA areas of the Common Core Standards in 1st through 5th grades.
You will have to decide which clue cards fit your students’ need and standards. Not all clues need to be used in the jar. All cards have been categorized by the Common Core Standards (Example: Conventions, Vocabulary, Phonological Awareness, Phonics/Word Recognition, Knowledge and Ideas, Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure)
