These word detective resources will show students how to "hunt" and "search" for clues that will help them decode an unfamiliar word in their reading. Each word detective clue describes a specific decoding or word attack strategy students can utilize. Included in this packet is a student tracking chart, where the students tally the amount of times they use each of the word detective strategies. A teacher observation checklist is also available to help teachers monitor student use of the decoding strategies.
