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. list making
2. sequential writing with marker words first, next, then, and last
3. Venn diagrams
4. draw and label
5. expository writing
7. nursery rhyme rewriting
8. comparing and contrasting
9. opinion writing
10. topic sentence with supporting sentences
11. H Chart to compare and contrast
12. graphic organizers with main idea and details
13. writing questions
14. creating a flow chart
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 3 (weeks 1-5). Please note that only week 5 has a day 5 writing extension. Wonders has projects that can be worked on during day 5.
