Mystery Words

Directions: 1. Bring a drawer with a set of Mystery Word envelopes to your seat. 2. Choose one envelope at a time. 3. Lay out the cards on your table top. Move the cards around to help you figure out the mystery word. 4. As you look for the mystery word, write down other words you find on your Mystery Word record sheet. Only write down words that have at least 3 letters. 5. Once you have found at least 15 words, you can put the cards away and choose another envelope. OR, you can continue with your current envelope and try to figure out the mystery word. 6. Make sure you have placed all of the cards in the proper envelopes before putting all materials back.
