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 believe with report writing, it's important to not generalise or be too 'flowery' in the comments. As a parent, I appreciate knowing which skills/areas my children need strengthening in. So as a rule of thumb - when it comes to report writing - I always start with a positive, then I mention an area that the student needs further development in and then I finish off on a high with another positive. Works a treat!

  • Great site. I downloaded lots of resources when I taught year 1. However, I cannot find much for Year 3 and I was looking forward to it. Could you please upload more for stage 2. Thanks

  • There are about 11 or 12 spelling choices for the speech sound sssss, so look at the THRASS resource chart. Not all there. It has left my child bored, and being told to learn the charts which still don't help him to spell the words he wants to spell, and is always being told its a catchall. A thumbs down for me too. Ken
