Wonder Wednesday - Ways to Wonder Video

This week I am taking a break from my normal Wonder Wednesday format to share a special WONDER video.  I'm sharing today because the main child in the video is my daughter Betsy (my proud mom moment).  I'm also excited to share the video on this Wonder Wednesday because all of the other children in the video are from my school, Monroe Elementary and my classroom is featured in the video (my proud teacher moment).  I love that Wonderopolis used real, authentic users of their website to star in the video.  I also love that the new video shares natural ways that you can wonder as family or with your students in your classroom from a kid's perspective.

After watching the video, I leave you with these questions:  
  • How do you WONDER? 
  • How do you share your WONDER with others?
  • Why do believe WONDER is an important component of learning?
Happy WONDERing!

Wonder Wednesday - Wondering About Flying

This week's #WonderWednesday inspiration comes from flying across the country yesterday.

Some wondering I have about flying:

  • How many airports are there in the United States?
  • How many flights fly everyday?
  • How many people fly those flights everyday?
  • When and where did the first commercial flight fly?
  • What affects does flying have on your body?
  • How much luggage is lost daily?
