Product Description
Mysteries unsolved and unexplained are fascinating to kids. Using Mystery books allow children to predict, infer, draw conclusions and more with great literature. This bundled pack offers a Close/Shared Reading Unit utilizing the genre of Mysteries that focus on asking and answering questions, central theme, characters overcome obstacles, vocabulary, text structure, the point of view, and compare and contrast

Using mysteries to teach these standards really opened my eyes to what children need to do to hold onto information across a text. Solving a mystery requires close reading and thinking deeply about text. I found this genre to be perfect for covering many ELA standards. I hope you do as well!

Included in the Packet:
Reading and Discussion Tasks including
Asking Questions (text-based)
Predicting/Inferring and Visualizing
Connecting Background Knowledge
Integrating Knowledge and Ideas
Character Responses
Points of View
Cause and Effect
