It’s a Wonder!

Want to be part of Camp Wonderopolis this summer?  If you are one of my students, have your parents email me to let me know you would like an invite to join (they know how to get me:)  It’s a FREE, fun learning online activity where you get to read, watch cool videos, and answer questions.  At the end of each lesson, you take a very short quiz and earn “Wonder Cards!”
