Word Detective

I had no idea how much the kids would love this center when I first introduced it. It is one of the many choices the kids have for Work on Writing for Daily 5. This was one of my earliest centers introduce & has withstood the test of time & the waning interest of kids. Just something about those glasses, clipboards, & being able to walk around the room! They simply look for a word beginning with each letter of the alphabet. I love looking back at these papers & seeing the words they brought into the classroom. One student wrote all the names of the trains from Thomas!!! AND HE HAD THEM SPELLED CORRECTLY!


  1. Cute idea! Kiddos love anything when you add glasses or a hat! =)

  2. Thanks! Yes they do! I need to find a "detective" hat to go with this, that's a great idea. Thanks!
