What is it? A Guessing Game

Last year I made this guessing game using mini file folders and pictures from magazines.
The idea originated at Childcareland.
Inside is the picture.
A little window is cut on the front so you have a glimpse of the picture.
Clues are there for the grown ups to ask the children.
 Something that I would add, looking at it with fresh eyes, is the answer on the inside so they can see the word.

  2. Hi Maureen! We just loved this activity and featured it here at our blog >> Preschool Lesson Plans. We were sure to give photo and idea credit, as well as a link back to your site, but we'd be thrilled if you'd take a look at it and, if there are any problems, we'll be certain to take the feature down immediately!

    Thanks so much!

    1. Thanks for linking it to your blog. I have to add that the original idea came from Childcareland. I modified her idea and added the questions. I've added her link to the post.

  11. I think that this is a great way to practice inferencing, even my seventh graders enjoy doing this to change the pace when it comes to test review.
