If you are new to the Wonders Reading Curriculum and having trouble juggling all of the activities, you are not alone. This document includes a five day plan (1 day for assessment) for Unit 1 Week 1 lessons. The lesson plans are easy to read, organized into steps, and scripted so a lot of the work is done for you! Each lesson includes learning targets, group activities, independent activities, and a scripted style lesson. The lessons cover:
Unit 1 Week 1
-Day 1: Essential Question, collaborative conversation, genre, and listening comprehension
-Day 2: Vocabulary, vocabulary strategy, and shared read
-Day 3: One of the comprehension strategies/skills (I alternate each week since many overlap throughout the units) reread shared read, literature anthology reading
-Day 4: Close reading/audio reading with the literature anthology/respond to reading questions
*Day 5: Assessment/Centers (vocabulary/comprehension assessments, wonders online, leveled readers)
BONUS: List of weekly vocabulary words ready to display or print out for students! Each word is numbered and defined.
You will need to supplement these lessons with the curriculum resources such as Wonders online, teacher guides, printables, and the Readers Workshop books/Literature Anthology. To add to Day 2 (vocab practice) I often find additional vocabulary sheets for practice here on TPT or on other sites. These lessons gave me a much more concrete plan to follow than the guides provided and I hope they help you and your learners as well!
*Please leave me feedback as to how I can update these lesson plans to support you! I can guide you through any questions you might have.
