Inviting Mystery Readers to the Classroom
- Grades: 3–5
At the beginning of the year, I send a note home inviting all parents to sign up to visit our classroom as a Mystery Reader. The note indicates that Mystery Readers read for 10-15 minutes after lunch every Friday, and it includes all available dates throughout the year.
I then create a sign-up book that is kept in my classroom. Parents can either come to the classroom to sign up, or they can email me with dates that will work for them. I even encourage parents to invite grandparents, older siblings, or any other family members that might be interested in visiting our classroom to be Mystery Readers during the school year.
