PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here’s a perfect writing craft to go along with the Mystery Genre. I used this activity with my second graders in guided reading groups. Each group read a Cam Jansen mystery together. To summarize their story, they each created a top secret case file. That included clues they found while they read, a summary of the mystery, a magnifying glass showing a visualization of the story, and a detective card with their picture and thumb print. This file set includes all the materials you will need to create a top secret case file with each of your students.

What’s in the set?
Just provide a manila file folder and then use the materials in this set…

-2 student examples for your reference
-2 Detective Case File Forms (Girl and Boy Version)
-Magnifying glass (have students illustrate a scene from their story)
-Top Secret Stamp clipart to cut and place on finished file folder.
-Case Closed Sticker to cut and place on finished file folder.
-Blank detective cards—you can add students picture and their name. Use the blank square and stamp the student’s fingerprint.
