Product Description
Raise your hand if you love creating many new center activities for every week of the year.

Nobody?

Me neither.

This is NOT one of those center activities!

My students use this activity almost every week of the year to focus on a certain type of word. Imagine your students with detective hats and mini magnifying glasses, completely engaged as they search through books or the word wall for a certain part of speech or spelling pattern.

Throughout the school year, my students act as "word detectives" to find a certain type of word as they read. One week, their assignment might be to find nouns. Another, they're on the hunt for linking verbs. The next week, words with a certain spelling pattern (au/aw, for instance).

The word detective form for the students is always the same, and by simply laminating the Word Detectives poster, you can change the "suspect" easily every week to match whatever you are teaching. It's a low-maintenance literacy center, or an easy-to-set-up component of Word Work that can be used every week of the year, and the detective theme gives it an element of fun!

To see how I use it in my classroom, check out the following blog post:
