How does it work?

Students complete six activities, discovering a mystery word for each one. They use these mystery words to crack a final code word. Why? To discover the answer to a joke.

The benefits of this resource are endless. Here are a few:

  • Fun way to review several ELA skills at once
  • Provides a goal
  • Turns learning into an escape-style game
  • Great for story comprehension
  • Audio on the digital version to meet the needs of students
  • Encourages the love of reading

What teachers say about my book companions:

My students absolutely LOVE your Book Challenges! It worked really well with my students who were Distance Learning at home as well as the students who were with me in class. We would go over the vocabulary and listen to the story together. Then I would pair my students up and they would work on the rest of the tasks. They loved the challenge and to see which pair of students could find the secret word and answer to the riddle!! Well done! I look forward to more of these Book Challenges! Thank you!
We Don’t Eat Our Classmates

These lessons are truly AMAZING! Not only is it a weeks worth of content -rich read aloud lessons, it has the fantastic mystery question twist solved after all of the challenges are achieved! They do not feel like lessons to the students, they feel like they are detectives trying to find the answers to reveal the mystery codeword ! Just brilliant lesson construction and format to engage students ! I can’t wait to use more of these this year! Thank you so much, Teresa !
