Mystery Bags is a whole class activity that provides students with letter sound practice in a fun way.

Before beginning the lesson, send home a paper bag with a note explaining the activity {Letters providing different options are included in this pack}.

On their day, students will bring a secret item in the paper bag that begins with the first letter of their first name. The rest of the class will try to guess what is in the Mystery Bag, making guesses that begin with that letter sound.

The presenter then completes a booklet page (with the corresponding letter on top of the page) that shows what they brought as their mystery item. When everyone has had a turn, compile the pages to create a class book. {It will be popular!}

A sample of how the lesson is run is included. My students LOVED this activity, and could not wait for their turns!!! It's a fun and engaging way to reinforce those letter sounds!
