When your week comes up I will be sending home a letter that looks like this:

Dear ______________________,

This is just a reminder that you signed up to be our Mystery Reader this Friday afternoon at 2:40pm. Since you are a "mystery" to the students, I am hoping you will be willing to write five clues about yourself that I can give to the class as hints on Friday before you come.

Here is a sample set of clues written by a parent last year:

  1. My favorite book when I was in first grade was The Cat in the Hat.
  2. I was the  youngest child in my family growing up.
  3. My family has one dog as a pet.
  4. I love to watch American Idol with my family.
  5. My favorite family vacation is visiting our family cottage in upstate NY every summer.

I start with clue #1 and end with clue #5 . As you get closer to clue #5, you should make your clues a bit more revealing so that your child starts to recognize some of the information in the clues. It is so fun when students realize that their parent is one who has written the clues and will soon be reading to our class!

Let me know if you have any questions!                        *Please bring in 2 books to read*

Kindly,

Jenn Crane
