Cam Jansen is a mystery-solving machine! Students will love Cam's first mystery-solving experience, and this novel study will guide them through each chapter with before reading, during reading, and after reading questions in a student-friendly and consistent format!
The 8 chapters of this book are separated into 7 reading assignments (Chapters 7&8 are read in the same assignment), and each reading assignment includes a pre-reading question, a graphic organizer / note-taking space for students to use while they read to encourage deeper thinking and more purposeful reading, and a set of questions to answer after reading. All reading assignments include CCSS-alignment for 2nd and 3rd grade, a vocabulary building and "dig deep" shovel questions (to show students where they need to think "deeper" than the text itself!), and, to make your reading groups run seamlessly, a detailed answer key with text citations, a variety of possible answers for questions that can be answered multiple ways, and a grading rubric for the "Letter to Cam" activity at the end of the novel study.
This novel study is great for guided reading, independent reading, book clubs and lit circles, even homework! Students will love the variety of questions and graphic organizers, and you will love the rigor and the ease it brings to your instruction!
