What is a Sakura?
New Wonders of the Day like those listed above are posted daily, and connect engaging informational text to content areas across the curriculum, including STEM subjects. Each Wonder meets multiple Common Core State Standards, particularly for reading and language, and can easily be used to support writing, speaking, and listening.
I created a unit to go with Wonder #192 What is a Sakura? that has students asking questions, reading informational text, writing, creating art and writing a Haiku poem.
