mystery readers

In my first grade class we do Mystery Reader-- i try to mix it up. We mostly have parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, etc... but then I also mix in community members.

Before that day, I secretly talk to the mystery reader and collect three clues from them: one that absolutely would not give them away (ie. when I was young, I had a dog named ____), one that might give the kids a hint, and one that will surely give it away (this one is sometimes even an inside joke or pet name) At the beginning of the day, I put up the mystery read poster, all folded up. I reveal one clue at a time. The last clue, I show right before the mystery reader comes through the door. Even though this project takes virtually no time for me to set up (especially if you front load by having sign up during conferences or open house), it is the highlight of the kid's year!
