Each detective kit comes with FREE detective badges and even a BONUS wall poster to display for after your class has solved the case.
Don't delay; help Detective Dan, Penny, Winston the detective dog and Poppy the cat solve the capital letter caper today!
Excellent as a diagnostic tool or post test to evaluate you student's capital letter skills. Great for end of year or end of term assessments.
What is included:

Printable 'capital Letter Detective' badges
1 A3 color/colour wall poster WARNING: Do not display until you have solved the case (Completed the 10 lesson unit)
Credits page with photo of the real Winston dog
How I use it:
I have been doing an intensive punctuation program this term and thus have been doing one chapter a day.
You could equally do one a week for ten weeks.
I read the story to the class then set them off to do the sheets independently.
After completion, I bring the students to the mat and ask them to tell me how many capital letters they have found/fixed. I record this on the board ie 10 found 12, 3 found 13 etc.
Then lastly we read it together and mark it together.
If you have not read the first installment - The case of the missing full stops then you should check it out here:
The Case of the Missing Full Stops
My class are always asking, “when are we being full stop detectives again?”
Some of my class wear their 'Full Stop Detective badges' all day!
I am sure your students will love it as much as mine.
