New to the Wonders Reading Program? I have created a writing extension for each day. These correlate with the different stories, poems, and interactive read-alouds used in the Wonders series. Each writing prompt has the unit, week, and day listed in the top right corner to keep you organized! Some of the writing extensions are created for partners to complete, which aligns well with the collaboration piece of Common Core.
The different types of writing included with this product are:
1. statements and questions
2. graphic organizers (main idea and key details)
3. list making
4. identifying characters, settings, and events
5. Can Have Are chart
6. Venn diagrams
7. expository writing
8. topic sentences
9. H chart for comparing and contrasting
10. sequential writing with marker words first, next, then, and last
11. map making and reading
12. partner writing
I have created and used all of these in my classroom, with first graders, and the students love them! I model a lot of my writing prompts before the students complete them, especially when learning a new type of writing.
These are the writing extensions for Unit 2 (weeks 1-5). Please note that weeks 4 and 5 do not include a prompt for day 5.
