Remember when January used to be a slow month?!

Read Aloud Intrigue

We enjoyed Masterpiece so much, we're reading Elise Broach's Shakespeare's Secret as a follow-up. Students have become detectives to help solve the mystery of the missing diamond. Some theories follow:


Landon:

Hero will get the diamond by finding out what the poem means. She might need to go to the graveyard!


Jimmy:

I think Mrs. Roth gave Hero the book and poem because maybe, on a full moon, the book will wake Hero up and lead her to the diamond!


Kate:

I think the diamond is hid in one of the Shakespeare books in the Murphy house.


Tyler:

My theory is the diamond is hidden inside the house but only Miss Roth can find it because she has the necklace and you need that as a key to open a safe hiding in the house. She won't look for it because she doesn't want the police at the house again because it will bring back a memory of her friend.



I'm wondering...

Luisa:

How Hero can try to find the diamond when she has homework!


Rocco:

Did Danny get suspended for trying to steal the necklace from the Murphy's?


Tori:

Earlier in the story, Hero felt Beatrice got the better bedroom. Maybe the diamond is hidden in Hero's bedroom and she'll end up having the better bedroom!
