New Website

Have you heard of Wonderopolis?
Well, I had not {that is, not before about an hour ago.}

It is this brilliant website that promotes discovery, critical thinking, and using your imagination! It is the brainchild of The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) and sponsored by Thinkfinity.

Each day there is a new wonder. It starts with the Essential Question, a short video on the subject, followed by more information on the subject, vocabulary words, and links to support the subject.

Say what? Too cool!
And there is a new wonder EVERY DAY!

Choice Literacy has a brief article by Andrea Smith about the website and how she uses it in her Intermediate classroom. {Click here to view the article.}

My "teacher" brain has kicked that hamster onto his wheel and into high gear thinking about how to use this in my classroom! Our kiddos are incredibly inquisitive by nature, so this will be totally up their alley!!

Happy Saturday and GO GATORS!

  3. Hey! I just got your comment on all of the interruptions at our schools. I can't believe you're not getting recess due to all of that pretend lightning!! Do you know about Adventure to Fitness?? It's PE in the classroom and is online. It's led by someone else so you just have to push play. It's my newest thing for inclement weather. :)
