It was a Super Super Sleuth Blog Hop...Thank You!

Good news Sleuths!  We have winners!  Is your name on the list?  You should have received an email with your gift certificate from Colleen and Stacy at The Rungs of Reading sometime today. Congratulations to the winners, and thank you all for joining in on the fun!

It was such a great event, and these reading specialist/literacy coach bloggers did such a wonderful job putting together a wide variety of activities for everyone to enjoy with little people around the world. I know I for one am utilizing some of the materials I downloaded this week!  So nice to have a few things prepped and ready.  Many of these bloggers have expressed interest in another hop the weekend of November 22nd, so more details to come on that in the coming weeks.  For now, hopefully you can see what information these ladies have to share between now and then.

Before our hop began, I invited fellow bloggers to share with me their detective themed freebies and paid products that they thought fit our mission of reading instruction.  I thought I'd review a few of them that you might check out.  

First up is this cute unit from Nancy at Fun Times in First.  It focuses on vocabulary building.  Students locate words according to a specific criteria...Bossy R, Verbs and Nouns, and by Spelling Patterns. You can check it out in Nancy's store at Teachers Pay Teachers. $3.50...not bad!
Since writing is a focus of mine, I also picked this set from my friend, Shelley at The Perks of Teaching Primary and owner of The Write Stuff.  It includes skills that help build strong writers.  This one's priced right too...$3.00.  

Finally, I'll share this cute freebie by Annie Saurial.  I enjoyed using it with my fifth grade students last week as we studied several of the Greek roots included.  If you're reading mysteries, this would be a fun addition to the week's lessons.  

Well, that wraps up our week of sleuthing fun.  I hope you enjoyed the hop.  If you're a new follower of my blog, welcome!  I hope to share lots of useful information you can use in your classroom, so check the feed on Bloglovin for updates.   

Now it's time for me to get back to my real job and prep for my little people, but I wish you happy sleuthing with yours!
