PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


"I practice reading strategies,
With different hats upon my head.
Today, I’m a Reading Detective,
With an important job ahead!

As I put on my detective hat,
And my best detective face,
I’ll read closely for text evidence,
Finding clues to solve this case."

(Sample from "I'm a Reading Detective!" Poem)

Are YOUR students "Reading Detectives"?

As "Reading Detectives," students have to search for clues and information from the text to use as evidence. After collecting the evidence, they have to connect it with what they know to draw conclusions about the text. Students use their detective skills to fill-in the missing pieces, make inferences, and understand the “Big Picture” of a story.

Using reference materials, discussion cards, and an original "I'm a Reading Detective!" strategy poem, students will love putting on their "detective hats" to practice making inferences!

This 10-page packet includes:

- 3 Common Core Student Posters
- 1 “Reading Detectives…” Strategy List Poster
- 1 “I’m a Reading Detective!” Poem
- 1 Making Inferences Poster
- 1 Making Inferences Sentence Prompt Poster
- 1 Making Inferences Discussion Cards
- 2 Making Inferences Graphic Organizers

This packet is part of the "Reading Hats for Comprehension" strategy series and focuses on the Reading Detective Hat. (More strategy packets are coming soon!)

Common Core Anchor Standard:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1 -- Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
