Detective Max Learner helps you teach the Common Core State Standards for reading literature and informational text by capturing the attention and imagination of your grade K-2 students! Here’s how it works:
“Hire” Detective Max Learner!
• Choose your own “Detective Max Learner” plush
• Pose Detective Max with his special LETTER OF INTRODUCTION (included in this packet) at your gathering spot in your classroom. “Discover” your new guest and share Max’s letter. Students will be excited to “help” Max Learner “solve the mysteries inside of books”!
• Now you’re ready to bring out your favorite fiction and non-fiction read alouds to share, and follow up with your own questions or the text-dependent questions written by Max Learner Book Detective (available from our store on TpT)
Text Dependent Questions and More!
Max Learner’s Text Dependent Questions (TDQs) are all based on the Common Core State Standards for Reading and have been skillfully composed for many popular narrative and informational K-2 read-alouds. Each set of questions guides students to the heart of the book where the central message lives. Teaching reading standards with our kid-tested, teacher-approved TDQs is fun for everyone! We have TDQs for over 100 books (and growing) in our store on TpT.
IN ADDITION to our TDQs we include Close Reading Worksheets, writing and sometimes even art activities in our products. Be sure to check the descriptions and previews for a peek at all the different activities available in each one! Enjoy your read aloud time “To the Max” with Max Learner Book Detective!
