This is the object.
When the children had decided on a guess, they were invited to write their guess on a large piece of paper. We wanted to encourage them to independently print their word in order to engage in some purposeful writing.
Some of their guesses included a door hinge, a trailer hitch, a paint roller, a horseshoe, a smoother, a bell, a magnet, and a car part.
When children had finished their play time we gathered back on the carpet and discussed our guesses. It was interesting to hear children explain why they decided on the guess they did.
