What educators are saying

This was so nice to go over with students on the first day, but also send home for parents to look over and ask questions.
I started this in my classroom and my kids are so excited for it! I can't wait to keep using it and I'm excited for the variety of options! Thank you!


Using Mystery Word Whole Class Rewards is a fun classroom management tool. This is an easy way to motivate your class to work towards a goal together!

You choose the prize that you want your students to work towards, and they earn the letters to reveal their prize. Students at any elementary grade level will love this new spin on whole class rewards!

  • Print on cardstock (so students can’t see through the cards) and display all cards, flipped backward, so students don’t know the prize. For every earned letter, flip one over to gradually reveal the prize.
  • Print and put up each letter as they are earned.
  • Have students guess a letter - somewhat like Hangman or Wheel of Fortune. Correct guesses get flipped and revealed.
