Common Core Kindergarten Math and Reading-Detective Dan Complete Set
This is an Emergent Reader and a Class Book. For full enjoyment, you may want to consider also purchasing the Detective Sam Expansion Pack, which includes clues, manipulatives, and activities that tie into the detective theme.
The first activity is a mini book. Students will enjoy practicing their reading skills while they compare & contrast the missing item with things they run into throughout the search. To begin, print out the missing item onto cardstock. Laminating them will help prevent tearing and bending. Seeing the missing item throughout reading the book will help them remember the item’s details and make comparing/contrasting easier. As students read the book, they will compare/contrast the colors of the animals. They will write in color words on opposite sides of the Venn diagram. This is a great activity for introducing Venn diagram to Kindergarteners.
A class book is also included. Print the pages out and hole punch them so that they can fit in a three-prong folder. Glue or staple the cover page onto the front of the folder. This will allow you to have one large enough to use during whole group instruction. The color words are already written in the Venn diagram in the class book.
