Every Wednesday, we celebrate Wonder Wednesday in our classroom. and so I will be assigning  WONDER homework. The students are continuing to leave comments and over Labor Day  12 out of 23 students left a comment, and the comments were excellent. But the conversations in class were the BEST part because they came in excited to share with their friends.

I value wonderopolis for many reasons but one of the most important parts is the integration of school and home.  I am focused on extending the school day allowing my students to integrate 21 Century skills with my science curriculum. Also the connection between the parents and the students and their discussions at home are so important to my students as learners.  In addition to have instant feedback is such a positive experience for the students as well as me.

In addition I am excited for the different learners in my classroom.  I have had the opportunity to learn about my students.  I am so pleased with Harshitha’s comments because she is working on learning English. Her family just moved to the United States, and she is helping her parents also with learning English through Wonderopolis.  How exciting :)

 Next the connection with our Word Study (WS) and integrating new vocabulary into all writing..
Finally, the highest level of learning the transfer of learning to someone else or better yet to another life experience.  Read this comment and see how the learning transferred.
The power of commenting is HUGE and already my class is starting to step up to the plate and hit a home run!
