    This Reading Mystery Bundle contains all of my 'Once Upon a Crime' story activity packets to date. It will be a growing bundle since any future reading mysteries of the 'Once Upon a Crime' series will also be added to this bundle.

    These are all print and solve activities.

    There are optional video hooks provided to set the stage to engage.

    What does a reading mystery involve?

    Reading mysteries are a fun way to incorporate a range of ELA skills in one.

    Students will be required to read the story passages and complete activities to discover clues. - Students must highlight the evidence in the reading text to prove their answers. Each clue requires students to critically think to decide which suspects they can eliminate as being the culprit. There are five clues to crack in every case!

    __________________________________________________________________

    Implementation suggestion: Depending on your students' reading abilities, the ease of these activities may vary. To keep everyone at the same pace, you could read the passages together as a class and then follow up with the activities to fill in the missing letters that will help unlock a clue. For independent work, set a timer for reading only, and then allow them time to answer the questions and re-read the text if they need. If your students find this too easy, I'd recommend the 'Private Eye CSI - Literacy Mysteries' range instead, which requires inferring and more skill to solve the mystery.

    If your students are trying to attempt the activity section without reading the passages, instruct them to highlight the evidence in the reading text to show you where they found the answers.

    Differentiation Options included with each Reading Mystery Resource

    • A 'B-Edition' Alternative Structure is included for differentiation purposes. This alternative copy of each mystery removes the missing letter filling structure and requires full answers. If you choose to use the B-Edition copy, you will need to prep the clue cards into envelopes or boxes (or keep hidden) and students will need to check-in with you to gain access to each clue.
    • Word Banks are included within a single file found in the alternate options. These are useful if you need to make this activity easier for some of your students.
    • Check out the 'Read me' file included in the folder download first.
