Every child loves show and tell, but with the ever increasing demands on instruction, it often feels difficult to squeeze it in. This activity is just what you need to help your students fulfill their wishes for show and tell time, while meeting the demands of the Common Core. The mystery box is something I use in my classroom to help my students work towards meeting the Common Core speaking and listening standards. I send this box home nightly with one student, as well as with a word game that matches this detective theme for at home word work practice. Please download the preview to get a better idea of what you will receive should you purchase this product.
