Product Description
Cam Jansen is a junior detective with a photographic memory created by author David Adler. She stars in a series of mysteries written for the confident 2nd through 4th grade reader. These early chapter books place our heroine in believably perilous situations that hold the interest of the reader.
This literature unit begins by introducing children to the concept of photographic memory. They are given a chance to see how many labrador retriever puppies - and their names - they can recall after examining a picture of them for two minutes. This exercise gives the young reader the background information that makes Cam�¢ï¿½ï¿½s special gift understandable.
Vocabulary and comprehension activities are presented for every cluster of 2 chapters. Each cluster is introduced by a vocabulary activity that presents important words students will need to know. Students are asked to make predictions based on the words and pictures they see for that cluster. Following each vocabulary worksheet is a set of comprehension questions that require students to recall details, confirm their predictions, and draw conclusions. I have designed the worksheets so that answers must be written in complete sentence form. The final 2 worksheets present a story map that allows students the order the important events and clues used by the detective to solve the mystery. This literature unit is a thorough and thoughtful companion that can increase the reader�¢ï¿½ï¿½s enjoyment of this story!
