This is a SMART Notebook file designed to go with the book A to Z Mysteries: The School Skeleton. I read this book aloud to my students every October (I even start off with our school's skeleton in my room to study bones!)
To go along with the read aloud, I have my students create a Detective Notebook (which is a free download from my TPT page). In this notebook, students stop at the end of each chapter and discuss the clues they discovered in this chapter and make a list of suspects based on the evidence.
This notebook file is designed to be displayed on the board while reading, and to be used as a teacher guide for students when they are writing in their detective notebooks. At the bottom of each chapter page, students have an open ended question to answer about the chapter.
