For this month's free writing prompt I wanted to assign something that would challenge students to develop a mystery story. This task can easily be adapted for various writing abilities. Check out some writing guide questions in this post to help your students get started with planning and thinking about their mystery story.
Are you looking for something to get your kids writing a narrative? This month's visual writing prompt is ready to add to your collection of ideas to get started.
Adding some fun background music while completing a math or reading mystery can create a positive working atmosphere in the classroom. Your student detectives will feel more immersed in the mystery task and, hopefully, be more motivated to persevere through the more challenging questions and puzzles. Like a workout, the type of music you choose to go with the rhythm of the activity is important. So, in this blog post, I've rounded up some music track suggestions, from YouTube, for you to readily find and play when doing a mystery activity at home or in the classroom.
