Where Kids Wonder!

24 07 2012

Non-fiction is something I really want to focus on this year. I want to increase my non-fiction selections in my classroom library and I want to read more nonfiction aloud.

One of the ways that I found to incorporate non-fiction into our classroom is at a website that I found. It is called Wonderoplis.  It has what they call a wonder of the day. A question is posed and then there is a video that relates to the question, an article, wonder words that are in the article that students can look up and then a what’s next section that links to other places with more information.

Students can read the wonder of the day, or search by a category they are interested in. I am still throwing around ideas of how exactly I want to use this with my students. I will share my ideas when I have them finalized, if you get an idea of how to use this in your classroom, share it with us here!

I definitely think the website is worth checking out though!

I will definitely check out the site you mentioned. I may be able to use with my kids too.

I just recently stumbled upon this website as well, and am very excited about it! I was thinking of using it first thing in the morning and having them respond to the post in their writer’s notebook. Just to get the day started with something to stimulate their thoughts, plus there are so many! So wonderful 🙂
