Getting Ready for WONDER Tuesday

I have to admit I have a bit of a compulsion with locating graphic images for my blog honestly that is sometimes the most fun for me.  I have had this graphic saved for a few months and just could not figure out when it would work and finally I have it! 

We are having our final digital literacy parent presentations this upcoming Tuesday with the students sharing their wonders which we now call Baileyopolis which is a total "steal" from Wonderopolis.  Our third trimester of reading and writing has been about how to integrate non fiction into model wonders.  This has been a huge learning experience because we started with Bloom's verbs for higher level thinking and then the students had to choose the most important research for their wonder.  The integration of videos, graphs, data, pictures to support their topic has just enhanced them to a higher level. One change that I did not make with wonder topic is CHOICE which is why I love my graphic.  Every student got to choose their topic so every visual at the top is integrated into their wonders.  I am so excited for Tuesday and will be able to post a few wonders next week!
