Turn your students into detectives with this interactive literacy groups activity. Each card contains a print concept that students must find in a book they are reading. When they find a concept, they place a card on that page and continue reading to find the rest. This activity works for any book that contains at least short sentences. Detectives can check their work with a partner or the teacher when they are done.
Use a support person to assist with finding all the concepts.
Try that activity with a book unfamiliar to the student.
