Nate the Great, Table Twitter...and a Classroom Mystery to Solve!

We completed another book study, this time with the mystery genre. My class LOVED Nate the Great!

Before reading the book, I had my students work in groups to make predictions about the book. I call it 'Table Twitter'. :)

Then we dug into the story. We focused on elements of the story, character traits, the plot, inferencing, making connections, vocabulary, and much more!

Instead of our usual Paper Bag Book Club {here} of course I had them solve a mystery in our classroom!

Before school, I laid out all kinds of clues and taped it off with CAUTION tape.

We dressed up like detectives to make it even more fun!

I made my students their own notebooks to document what they saw and to piece together their thoughts and inferences.
