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. sequential writing with marker words first, next, then, and last
2. writing folktales
3. expository writing
4. topic sentence with supporting sentences
5. graphic organizers with main idea and details
6. using commas
7. Venn diagram
8. list making
9. draw and label
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 4 (weeks 1-5). Please note that there are not writing extensions for day 5 because of the reading comprehension tests that your students will be completing on these days. Wonders has projects that can be worked on during day 5.
