for rising 4th, 5th, and 6th graders
This one-week camp is designed to develop and strengthen strategies to improve comprehension with an emphasis on mysteries. Activities will include a mystery novel study, mini-mysteries, clue hunts and reading games. As students review comprehension skills, they will become super-sleuths as they solve mysteries and focus on the importance of answering the who, what, when, where, why, and how of comprehension. Daily mini-mysteries and hunts will aide students in following directions and applying comprehension strategies.
