Another notebook strategy I introduce to my students is writing down any "I wonder" questions that they might have. My I wonder questions today included:
I wonder who cleans up after Clifford the Big Red Dog?
I wonder how you tile a back splash?
I wonder if my dogs like the taste of bones, or if they just like to chew?
I wonder what underwear was like a long time ago?
Now, obviously some of these questions I can research and answer, and some of them just make me giggle and wonder.
