Wonder Words

We have added a new feature in our classroom. When children read just right books, they should know almost all of the words in their book choices. However, if they come across a word they don’t know, they may add it to our “Wonder Words”.  We define the words together. They are very enthusiastic about this activity and their vocabulary is growing! I have a hunch that I’ll start to see these words in their written assignments.

During reading today, we defined gawked, cinch, instantaneous, unravel, and feeble.
