Groundhog day reading mystery
Store: Mrs. J’s Resource Creations
Reading Mystery: Once Upon a Crime, Burrow Slime!
This Mystery Activity Begins with a Video Hook....
Don’t stress! The Groundhog is OK, but he is trapped inside his burrow! Your students must read and complete the activities to remove the burrow slime.
- The main goal in this mystery is to encourage reading.
- The work involved to solve the clues covers skills such as comprehension; spelling; vocabulary; synonyms; cause and effect.
- Students must highlight the evidence in the reading to prove their answers.
- The discovery format requires a fill in the missing letter process to unlock clues. The alternative B-Edition requires full answers, but, this means students must check-in with you or somewhere in the classroom to collect the clue instead.
(Please note, that the groundhog is OK and is just trapped asleep inside his burrow).

Mental Math - 100 problem cards that encourage your students to solve math problems in their head quickly
You can use these mental math task cards as a math warm up to begin your math lesson, or use as a time filler throughout the day.
Students each have ten digit cards on their desk as you read each card. The students use the digits to keep track of the math tasks they are computing in their head. They love being able to follow along with each task and eventually end up with the correct answer.
I use these cards for whole group, small group, and even partnership lessons.
These mental math problems will increase your students' listening, problem solving, and computation skills.
Be sure to check the preview for 4 example cards to make sure it is the appropriate level for your students.
Do your students need practice with capital letters/capitalization? We all know that capitalization rules, but sometimes our kids always seem to forget where and when to use a capital letter.
This packet will help your students to learn and remember all of the times that they should use a capital letter in their writing. Best of all, there is no prep for you - just print, copy, and go!
The capitalization rules are printed at the top of each page to help your students recall.
