The Mystery Genre: Bundled Unit for Grades 3-5

What better way to learn reading skills than through the eyes of a detective. Students become reading detectives who need to read closely, observe, think critically, answer questions, find evidence, make inferences, and come to conclusions. Speaking and Listening skills are also integrated into the lessons.
Each lesson provides gradual release for your students that starts with demonstration and practice and then leads into collaboration, and independent work.
Common Core Standards and objectives are included with every lesson.

Here are some additional resources that can be found in my store.
