Mystery Readers Wanted

CALLING ALL MYSTERY READERS!

We would like to invite any parents, older siblings, grandparents, relatives, or other special people to surprise your child by being a “Mystery Reader” this year in our classroom.

Students LOVE having their family, friends, and relatives visit our classroom to share in our learning by reading a favorite story aloud to our class.

Mystery Readers will visit us on Friday mornings between 10:30 and 11:30 each week. Readers are asked to bring a book to read or read a teacher-chosen book from our classroom library.

Please send me an email or drop me a “secret” note if you are interested! I will get back to you as soon as I can to confirm your official Mystery Reader date. Please give me at least one week’s notice so that I can arrange everything for your visit!

Remember, you are a mystery to the class, so try not to tell your child when you will be coming! Please contact me if you have any further questions.

We can’t wait to meet our Mystery Readers!
