This packet is all you need to launch a Text Detectives Book Club. There is a case file/graphic organizer for each Common Core State Standard in Reading: Literature and Informational Text for first grade. The pack will also be great way to practice locating text evidence to support their "case."
The packet includes:
-Teacher Directions and Tips
-Printable magnifying glasses
-Text Detective Badges that fit in any standard name tag holder
-A friendly letter written to your class asking them to join the club
-An application to join the club
-A case file cover page for each standard
-full page and half page graphic organizers for each standard
-Directions on how to launch a book club in your classroom
Students will love practicing their reading skills in this club. It's a huge motivator for my own students, especially when they know popcorn is involved! Thanks for stopping by!
The Common Core Standards were developed and written by the NGA.
