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!
