A Wrinkle in Time
A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger."Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal.

I have read this book 4 times, and first found it in 4th grade. This is my all time favorite book and suggest it for anyone who likes science, or even reading in general. I think this book has a good story line and the charcters devolpment is really shown. Please go read!

A book that really pushes ur imaginations. If you're someone who draws the entire plot in their head, this book challenges you to its deepest core. Drags a bit at times but not a disappointing book at all, keeping in mind this book was written nearly 5-6 decades ago with such emphasis on Time Travel.
My fav character-Mrs Who & her amazing quotes!

2. Sherman‘s Lagoon 🦈
3. Lately, Jussi Adler Olsen‘s The Scarred Woman

I would recommend this book for the classic that it is. Definitely to younger readers but I don't think this book would be enjoyed as an adult as much as it would as a teenager or preteen.

A Wrinkle in Time is a Newbery Honor recipient and is a SF novel. This novel follows Meg, her brother Charles, and friend Calvin as they search for her missing father. Together these three children and three supernatural women who take them on a journey to bring back Alexander. Students will learn the power of unconditional love and how it can overpower darkness and hate. This is a great book to use in a classroom in LC.

Good morning on day 2 of #24in48! For the #hour30 #MGYA challenge, I actually already used these books (is that kosher?) for #sff. However really a wrinkle in time is one of my all time favorite books! The hero and the crown and the thief were also favorites of mine. I recently read some of the thief books and they stand up- still so good! of the copies pictured, the hero and crown is the only one I‘ve had since childhood and you can tell 😂 📚

I started this book a while ago, pretty sure it's been over a year. But I just couldn't get sucked into it for some reason. Decided to finally power through and finish it while on vacation and watched the movie adaptation immediately after. Over all, both were pretty enjoyable. But I think I would have liked it more if I had read it as a kid. What do you littens think, is it worth continuing with the rest of the series?

rretzler It was my one of my favorite books while growing up. I read it first in the late 60‘s and many times in elementary school. I‘ve since read it to my sons a couple of times and it didn‘t hold up for me. I think the fact that it was so overtly religious escaped me when I was in elementary school - that part turned me off as an adult. As a child, I believe I identified with Meg and Charles Wallace because of their intelligence - rare in a book then. 4mo
rretzler I won‘t watch the movie because I‘ve heard it‘s nothing like the book and that‘s a big turn-off for me! 4mo
rretzler The rest of the series was not nearly as good as the first book. The second book was similar in theme to the first with the same characters. It has an internal theme versus the external theme of the first book. Many Waters features Sandy and Dennys and is a take off on the Noah‘s Arc story. The other two I don‘t really even remember although I know I read them. 4mo
See All 7 Comments
BarbaraJean I second what @rretzler said—I think Wrinkle in Time is the best of the series. A Swiftly Tilting Planet almost feels like historical fiction except that Charles Wallace sort of enters the consciousness of various people throughout the history of his ancestors. It sounds weird and it is! I love L‘Engle‘s ideas, but the way she embodies those ideas in the rest of the series gets to be a little too out there for me. 4mo
rretzler @BarbaraJean Ah, yes, I now remember that one. It was not bad, but I agree that it was a little weird. As I recall, it was published when I was in High School so I didn‘t read it until much later as an adult. The first and second I read as a child and loved the scientific aspect of them - the rest didn‘t seem as scientific to me. The tesseract and the explanation of dimensional travel thrilled me as a child! Geeky, I know! 4mo
BarbaraJean @rretzler Yeah, in the third, the fantasy shifts more to telepathy and away from the sciency fantasy of the first two. I loved the idea of the tesseract, too. 😊 I also think there‘s more character development (esp. with Meg) in the first two, which I connected with more as a kid. 4mo
SW-T I loved the first book when I was young. Didn‘t try book 2 til I was older and couldn‘t get into it then. Maybe I‘d have liked it better if I‘d read them closer together. Lovely photo btw 😊 4mo

A genuinely enjoyable book! I really wouldn't have had a guess that it's a 60 year old story if the one boy hadn't kept saying "Golly"

Definitely will share this one with my kids.

I very much enjoyed this recording of the newest edition of one of my all time favorite books. Hearing Ava Duverney share what this work means to her, then listening to Madeline L‘Engle read her own introduction in a recording from a time before I was born, both really hooked me. I enjoyed Hope Davis‘ narration as well.

I‘m not going to lie, I was very hesitant to read this book. However, after renting this book from the CMC I read it in one day! This book was so good! It is about a girl named Meg who goes on an adventure of a lifetime with Calvin (a classmate) to find Meg‘s father who is trapped on another planet! This SF novel by Madeleine L‘Engle is a Newbery Award Winner, and would be great for LC! #LAE3414Sp19

A wrinkle in Time a SF, John Newbery Medal winner, would be good for LC. This book is about a girl who travels through time and space to find her dad. This could be beneficial in the classroom because students can read this while discussing other content areas. UDL Strategy 5.2 Use multiple tools for construction & ESOL 2 Promote cooperation would align with the lesson plan by having them organize thoughts for communication. #LAE3414sp19

A Wrinkle in Time is SF novel written by Madeline L‘engle this book has won a Newberry. This SF novel would be perfect as an IR book as well as an LC book. I can see students reading this book alone and enjoying it a great amount and then I can also see students in a group discussing this book with one another. #LAE3414sp19

LaGasseSam1996
If students are reading this in a group or by themselves, you will want to limit distractions for the students as much as you can. This is UDL 7.3. You can set time aside once or twice a week to allow students to read independently or to meet in their groups and discuss the book.

I think it was very important that you included limiting distractions if allowing students to read this in a group setting.

A Wrinkle in Time (SF, Newbery Honor, and RA) was one of my favorite reads this semester! The astral travelers are my favorite part, and it was awesome to watch the 2018 film to go along with the novel. This goes along with UDL Principles 1.3: Offer alternatives for visual information (if you show the movie in the class) and 5.1: Use multiple media for communication. It also encompasses ESOL Strategy 13: Use preview/review activities.

gnewman This may be a new concept for students to tackle (especially if it is related to science lessons), so making sure that everyone fully understands what is going on before moving along is key for comprehending this book at a high level. In addition, and excellent resource comes straight from Madeleine L'Engle's website. 7mo

A Wrinkle In Time follows main character Meg, a young girl, on her journey to find her father who disappeared a long time ago.

She is accompanied by intriguing guides including Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. Personally I thought their characters added a magical quality to this book and I liked them best of all.

It‘s a decent book but not a defined pick just because I see it geared for a much younger audience than I originally thought.

A Wrinkle in Time is a classic F book written by Madeleine L'Engle and won a Newbery award It is about 3 kids, Meg, her brother Charles, and Megs classmate Calvin who travel to find Meg and Charles's father who is stuck on another planet and held there by evil forces. It's a great book that teaches kids about good and evil and unconditional love. #LAE3414sp19

Haleysantucci https://edsitement.neh.gov/lesson-plan/wrinkle-time-board-game Is a fun lesson plan for kids in 5th-7th grade. I did this lesson plan when I was in sixth grade and I remember it being so fun, I was fully engaged the entire time and was analyzing plot and character development. This lesson plan utilizes UDL4.1 and 5.2 because of the various ways the children are expressing their knowledge and communicating the principles. 8mo
Haleysantucci Strategies 2 and 8 will be helpful in this lesson plan for ESOL students because the lesson plan has the kids work in groups anyway and modeling what a game board is and how to create one is needed. 8mo
Haleysantucci It's a longer book so it may be good for LC's. I had this books read aloud to me everyday for the last 15 minutes of class and I loved it. 8mo
