Franklin First Graders Become Word Detectives


Franklin First Graders Become Word Detectives

•	Some of Miss Parson Class with Detective Brain  

ROXBURY, NJ (March 15, 2019) – Students in Miss Parsons’ first-grade class worked hard in recent weeks to become word detectives. Each day they received a mission from the Super-Secret Detective Agency (SSDA). 

Each mission involved a strategy on how to solve challenging words in their reading books. After successfully completing all five missions, they had a special visitor, Detective Brain from the SSDA! He surprised the class and handed out their word detective badges! 

Miss Parson’s shared that “The class continues to work hard each day as official word detectives!”
