Mystery Bag Description Framework - Suggestions for Use


  • I love this idea - it is great for oral language, communication skills and the description language process.

  • Children are rostered on to take home the Mystery Bag.  

  • The bag is taken home with a note to the parents explaining that children need to bring in a mystery object chosen from home for the next day.

  • Children are also to come up with some clues about their object with the help of their parents.

  • A framework for organising descriptions (see below) could also be sent home to be utilized formally by actually writing clues down, or for younger children, as a guide for discussing the clues.

  • Back at school, draw up a large version of this framework on the board, or chart and fill it in as the whole class sorts through the clues provided by the 'mystery bag' holder.  

  • This framework is also great for guiding questions about the object from the class.

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.

  • Dear Donna, thanks so much for doing these, i remember when i asked for these last year when i was teaching my special ed kids, im now at another school in NW WA and they will be just as useful in the two classes im now teaching, (Year 3 and Year 4), as the kids here arent necessarily up to the rest of the ozzie kids out there.
