I think ABCMOUSE is a ( wonder)ful resource for teachers and students including students with special needs. My students really enjoy this sight.
I wonder how I am lucky enough to keep getting such good ideas from this site all the time!!!!!
And we think it’s wonderful that you keep coming back! Thanks, MaryEileen!
It would be wonderful to win!
The new Disney sweepstakes.
I like the 2 wonder books. I think my children would enjoy them too.
I wonder how my students will do over the summer. It is sad to see them make such gains and then take 3 months off. I know several will not pick up a book or do any math. How sad.
Name Picker Ninja would make things easier at times.
Wonderful world of Disney used to be a tv show and movies. Now it’s books too
The Name Picker Ninja sounds like it could be a whole lot of fun! I will definitely check that website out!
Thank you for introducing us to 2 new books. It is greatly appreciated.
Name Picker Ninja sounds awesome!
Everywhere Wonder would be a wonderful addition to my library!
I’m experiencing plenty of wonder down here in Florida while on vacation ~ especially loved the Everglades!
I’m wondering how the Name Picker Ninja would work with my students !
I am going to try the name picked Ninja! It sounds like fun.
Again, Mailbox is the best! It’s ALWAYS child-centered. I would love the Wonder Books.
I have a class that is 80% boys … so Name Picker Ninja is going to be a huge hit!
Thanks so much!
Well, for now the Wonder team is tops in my book. I teach EL students in Title and these books would be a great deal of help with the visualizing part of reading for students.
I wonder how wonderful the book of poet poems will be?
Wonder is a wonderful thing I hope my students will never lose. These are great resources.
My suggestion for Ninja Name Picker would be to always click on the home page first–otherwise the kids don’t get to see the Ninja kick out a new name. I love the wonderful collage illustrations in the Everywhere Wonder and Out of Wonder–they will be great to tie into 1st Grade Poetry and Art standards.
