I’m so excited to share this product with you! I created this pack to help build students’ literacy skills in a holistic way. Many aspects of language including vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, narrative elements, retell, and other concepts can be targeted. It can be used with ANY text! This product is perfect for upper elementary and middle school students.
Included in this pack:
Reinforcement coloring sheet – see visuals
Text – before reading worksheets (3)
Big picture worksheets (5) – expository and narrative options
Big picture extras – summary worksheets
Small details worksheets (5)
Small details extras – parts of speech
6 stories of various text structures – 1 narrative, 5 expository
To use: Choose a text or use one that’s included. Review steps and goals of becoming a literary detective. Complete all relevant worksheets. After each worksheet is completed, have the student color the corresponding picture clue from the top of the worksheet on the reinforcement sheet. When all pictures are colored (from 10 worksheets), the student can earn the award certificate! Use the “extras” sheets like a wild card to replace any worksheet/picture clue.
