This is a Story Detectives Lesson Powerpoint.
My lesson takes kids through the story of the three little pigs as a guided practice review. The powerpoint is animated and engaging.
This is a prior knowledge engaging activity that funnels into the story detectives activity. Teachers should select differentiated texts that best suit their student ability groupings. Students use teacher created clues according to each chosen differentiated text.
The resources for the small group portion can be accessed on this powerpoint or on my Story Elements Freebie
