Wonderopolis – A Wonder A Day

Thank you to Smithton Primary School for sharing the link to this resource.


Wonderopolis is great site for developing Literacy, Language and Communication. Click the image above to access the site.

Each day comes with a new ‘wonder’, covering a multitude of topics. Each wonder is presented with ‘Wonder Word’ vocabulary relevant to the topic.

The passages that come with each wonder could be used as a stimulus for a shared or independent reading session that could be used to teach Higher Order Thinking Skills. Check out the Higher Order Thinking Skills tab for resources which can be used to support you in developing higher order thinking skills within your classroom.

When exposing learners to the vocabulary within the passages you could use the Building Vocabulary for Better Literacy materials to tier the vocabulary which would be ‘just right’ for using the Pre-Teaching Vocabulary approach.
