Since late 2017, I've been creating a new set of mystery teaching resources to target reading comprehension and finding text evidence. I've been meaning to give away a free Reading Mystery of the Once Upon a Crime Series TM, to give teachers, homeschoolers, parents, and tutors a chance to try out one of these resources with their kids. So, finally, here's a chance to grab Once Upon a Crime, Twinkle's Lost Shine FREE for a limited time! Read on for notes, tips, and a word of caution for when using this mystery resource!
Adding some fun background music while completing a math or reading mystery can create a positive working atmosphere in the classroom. Your student detectives will feel more immersed in the mystery task and, hopefully, be more motivated to persevere through the more challenging questions and puzzles. Like a workout, the type of music you choose to go with the rhythm of the activity is important. So, in this blog post, I've rounded up some music track suggestions, from YouTube, for you to readily find and play when doing a mystery activity at home or in the classroom.
With all the chocolate eggs and bunnies at the supermarkets, how can you forget that Easter is just around the corner?
Thanks to my teachers I will always have fond memories of the magic and wonder they put in the lessons building up to Easter. The moment the teacher would start talking about the Easter holiday, every child’s face would light up. That is why I have eight ‘egg-cellent’ Easter Activities to check out that will liven the classroom atmosphere this year!
