PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FUN FEATURE!
Detective Badges:
The interior of the foldable badge shows the passage titles on the left side. Students indicate that they did find the proof by placing a checkmark in the box to the right of each passage title for this month that they successfully complete. Run a string through the holes as indicated so that students can wear their detective badges around their necks with pride. The printable badges are in b/w. Students add color.

The Summer Text Detectives edition features these 10 reading passages:

* Magnificent Manatees
* Cool & Colorful Chameleons
* Tropical Rainforests
* A Different Kind of Nest (Orioles)
* The Bald Eagle
* The Liberty Bell
* People from History: Thomas Jefferson
* People from History: Amelia Earhart
* Venus Flytrap
* Egyptian Pyramids


*** This also includes bulletin board printables. Those are one crayon box that reads "We can find the proof!" and each of the individual who/what/when/where/why color crayons as well as an extra white blank crayon. ***

(Note: These are the same passages found in my Summer Word Inspector resource but the kids are answering the 5W questions here and identifying words there.)

*** Update 6/5/15: This is a zipped file containing the complete resource in a pdf as well as the addition of a LARGE PRINT version of all the passages and questions. ***

Please take a look at the free preview for a sample passage.
