The first website is Wonderopolis ... yes that really is the name.
Wonderopolis has a wonder every day. Have you ever wondered about something?
Today's wonder was about emergency calls. One was about the wisest bird. To date; 822 wonders.
Each wonder starts with a small video. Then ... make sure you scroll down and do to the text about it. In our classroom, we use iPads to highlight the information and select read to have it read to us. However you may read it with your student or have them read to you!. On the iPad we also select words that are unknown. We hit read so we know how to "say it". Then we hit define and it pulls up a dictionary for "what it means". Then we read it in the sentence (word in context) If you have an iPad at home set it up to do this in your settings. If you have one and don't know how ... Let me know and I will walk you through it.
Below I have included how I apply wonderpolis to my program and below that an example of using it.
