One of the most anticipated events in my classroom each year is our weekly “Mystery Reader” time where parents and family members visit our classroom to read aloud a book to the students. The students never know who is coming in advance! They are given five clues provided by the reader to use in helping to infer who the “Mystery Reader” might be.
This packet will help you set up your own Mystery Reader program in your classroom. Included in this packet are a parent letter, sign up template, and a reminder letter to send home the week of each visit. The letters have blanks for you to fill in a day and time that will work best for your classroom and schedule. I hope your students enjoy this time as much as mine!
