Description

Are you looking for a easy Star Student activity that is engaging and easy to prep?

Then get to know more about your students interests, special abilities, likes, dislikes, families, favorites, pets, hopes, and dreams with this Mystery Clue Bag activity! This resource will help you build a more positive, caring, collaborative classroom community!

Each week one student in my classroom is chosen to fill a "Top Secret" bag with small items based on list of idea suggestions included in a family letter. That child then brings in his or her bag of clues to share with the rest of the group.

The guessing game format of this activity requires the class to "think like detectives," make inferences about each clue item, ask questions, and then determine the significance of each of the Star Student's special objects or pictures that are displayed on a special shelf or bulletin board.

This activity is a great way to build listening, questioning, and inference skills in a fun and focused format, and gives your group the opportunity to learn more about and respect the unique talents and capabilities of others.

Check out the thorough preview to see the following materials that are included:

*Teacher Tips

*Printable Bulletin Board Accents and Labels--Color

*Mystery Clue Bag Labels--Color and Black and White

*Printable Family Letter and Clue Idea List

*Star Student Name Frames --Color and Black and White
