All components of the program and all lessons are designed for efficiently and effectively meeting the Common Core Standards. So let’s check it out: Reading Wonders Grade 1 – How does it work.
Reading Wonders is an English Language program developed by education publisher McGraw-Hill for Kindergarten-K–6. The Wonders Literacy Program offers research-based literacy education, a great scaffolded program for student success, as well as a well-designed parent section with updates and weekly newsletters.
The Wonders program is in line with the Common Core Standards that are introduced in and accepted by most American states and the program includes many materials that allow teachers to personalize their instruction, guide small group or whole group learning, and to focus on writing at the same time.
The section Parent Newsletters can follow the same lessons that the students are working on. Each of the Unit documents includes a Newsletter and Comprehension Activity of that specific unit. The Newsletters and Activities section give you a pretty clear understanding of what the children are learning and in what way you best can support them at home. The Units of the Wonders program provide Newsletters in English and Spanish. See also how the program Whooo’s Reading works here.
The Wonders English Language program is full of resources and new features. The program was introduced at the same time as Wonders for English Learners and Maravillas (available in Spanish and English) and both programs are in line with the Wonders curriculum. The Wonder program is a digital curriculum but it comes also with full printable resources for students and teachers. This feature accommodates many schools and school districts who may not be in a fully digitalized phase yet. Keep in mind that this program is in no way an online learning program, though many “digitalized” elements have been brought into this amazing program.
