Starting the first day of school, I send the Mystery Box home with a different child every day. This is my way of doing show and tell. The child then brings one interesting item to school to share with the class. They write three clues about the item placed in the Mystery Box, and the other children try to guess what is inside the next day.
And this is what the clues look like:
The class gets to make three guesses before the child shows what is in the box. This is one of my favorite times of the day. I love trying to guess what the children bring. They always try to show me what they brought, but I like to be surprised, too!
