Today we read the book The Wednesday Surprise by Eve Bunting. The goal of the lesson was for students to write down their questions or wonderings as the story was being read. Students were given several sticky notes to record their questions. The next lesson will involve sorting all of their questions by whether the answer was in the text as well as whether the question really mattered in understanding the story.

Our big thinking question for the story was: What traits do you admire about the main characters Anna and her Grandmother? Why?

Students writing their wonderings about the story on stickies:
