Book Detectives Pack


Book Detectives Pack

Our book detectives pack gives your children the skills they need to digest a story. Give each child a different detective role and set them to work. One child can be a summariser, illuminator, illustrator, word finder, passage master, question master, opinion spotter, mind mapper, style seeker or link maker. A must have for any key stage one or key stage two classroom and a great way to approach group reading.

The pack includes:

  • Display banners
  • Display cut outs for the roles
  • Book marks for each role
  • Mats with key questions for each role
  • Display borders
  • Magnifying glasses explaining what each job involves
  • Double sided bookmark with all 10 roles explained
  • Table mats for each role with key questions and a job description
  • Job role posters

Perfect to use within a display and during a group reading session to prompt thoughts and ideas behind how a story is structured and what tools authors use to write a good story.
