Our first trimester ended the week of Thanksgiving. I wanted to slow down and have the students stop and reflect on their learning using Wonderopolis. Several students had commented that they enjoyed the wonders and more importantly choosing their own wonder for their Wednesday HW. Once again the power in choice is huge when using this site. I typed the above sentence prompts and asked my class to pause and reflect. How had wondering encouraged them to be stronger readers? What did they learn about their lives as readers when reading non-fiction? I will let the pictures below tell you the rest of the story.
