On Thursday, May 2nd 2013 we took our book study sessions outdoors. There, we engaged in our own wondering excercise using Heard and MacDonough's template "My Wonders" (Appendix page 159). This helped us to understand what it might feel like for our students. Some educators found they had more wonders than they could write, while others mentioned they were surprised that it was a challenging task. It was interesting to hear the different wonders. For example, D.K. wondered why she could feel the wind but not see it. (I promised that I would share her wonder on the blog!)
All of the educators contributed to the rich discussion by sharing their wonders and how they are using our book study learning within their classrooms.
Thank you for your participation and willingness to WONDER!
Please note, that I only included a photo of one of the book study groups, in order to respect everyone's privacy. The other photographs that I captured made it easy to identify participants. (I did not want to do this without asking you-but if you would like your photo to appear on this blog just let me or Marguerite know!)
As an adult, what are you currently wondering about?
