Hello, class, today we are starting our reading lesson on Wilson reading book 10. Today, we are not going to start with a usual lecture, but instead, we are going to do something different.

The Mystery Box Activity

Each one of you has a box on your desk. Inside the box, there is something that relates to our topic of the day. Before we open the boxes and discover what's inside, I want you to take a few minutes to guess what you think might be in your box. After that, we will open them together and see if your predictions were correct.

Group Discussion

Now that we've opened the boxes and discovered the items inside are clues related to the book, let's have a group discussion about the significance of these clues. Together, we’ll piece together the importance of the clues and how they relate to the book’s theme.

Connection to Reading

This activity is a great illustration of how we can use inference and prior knowledge to understand what we read. Like the mystery box, sometimes we don't have all the information, but we can use our critical thinking skills to infer what might be happening.


I hope that this activity has sparked your interest in the book we are learning today. Now that we have piqued our interest, let's dig into the pages and uncover what Wilson reading book 10 has in store for us!
