As a secondary teacher, I always appreciate the windows into elementary that your posts provide. If you're looking for slightly higher level ways to start a class a la Wonderopolis, check out http://tdc.ds106.us/ and http://writingprompts.tumblr.com/. Both are fantastic for grades 6-12 and I'd wager there's some useable stuff in there for k-5, too.
Genius Hour makes me think of the IB PYP "Exhibition" process :)
