Product Description

Georgia and Jen offer a menu of centers, projects, and ideas that teachers can weave into existing routines to create a "wonder environment," tapping young children's inherent curiosity and yearning for exploration. You'll see how to set a foundation for nonfiction writing and then embark on a nonfiction unit of study where students explore text structures, choose a topic, learn craft, edit, and publish their work.

Filled with classroom vignettes, photos, student samples, and recommended children's books, A Place for Wonder will give you a vision for transforming your classroom into a place where students constantly ask questions, research answers, write with voice, and use a variety of nonfiction structures and conventions.
