Organized Learning

The "Wow" Box

Have a box in your classroom where students may place cool facts, articles, pictures, songs, or quotes that they find interesting. It can be news or something that is "new" to them. Go through the box at the end of each day, or when you have extra time, and share a few of these Wow! Tidbits during Wow! Time each day. You may also wish to share one of these ideas as a spark for journal topics.
