I sent home a paper bag and a note explaining the activity. Students {with their parents' help} had to put an item in the bag that begins with the letter of their first name.

On their day, they brought it to school and presented it to the class:
My name is _____.
My name starts with letter ____.
It makes the sound _____.
Can you guess what's in my mystery bag?

I have my students fill in a page to show what they've brought, and when everyone has had their turn we make it into a class book.
I am always amazed that my students are such great secret-keepers, and NEVER tell anyone what they've brought!
Over the years my students have brought in some great items!
This year a girl in my class whose name starts with 'T' brought in tinsel from her Christmas tree. Love it!

  1. Love this idea! The students must love keeping what's inside their bag a secret. :)
