A Wrinkle in Time Movie Tie-In Edition
A Wrinkle in Time Movie Tie-In Edition | Madeleine L'Engle
It was a dark and stormy night... In 1962, Madeleine L’Engle debuted her novel A Wrinkle in Time, which would go on to win the 1963 Newbery Medal. Bridging science and fantasy, darkness and light, fear and friendship, the story became a classic of children’s literature and is beloved around the world. Now Disney is taking it to the silver screen! With an all-star cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and newcomer Storm Reid, the major motion picture bring the world of Wrinkle to life for a new generation of fans. This movie tie-in edition of the timeless novel features the complete, unabridged original text; an introduction by the film’s director, Ava DuVernay (Selma); and eight pages of photos from the movie. This title has Common Core connections. Praise for A Wrinkle in Time: "One of America’s most beloved stories." —Andrew Liptak in Kirkus “A coming of age fantasy story that sympathizes with typical teen girl awkwardness and insecurity, highlighting courage, resourcefulness and the importance of family ties as key to overcoming them.” —Carol Platt Liebau, author, in the New York Post “An exhilarating experience.” —Kirkus Reviews “This imaginative book will be read for a long time into the future.” —Children's Literature “A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.” —Meg Cabot “A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place.” —Cory Doctorow “[L'Engle's] work is one of the things that made me a writer, a science fiction and fantasy fan, an avid reader. Hers were the first books I read that mixed math and magic, the quest and the quantum.” —Scott Westerfeld “A Wrinkle in Time taught me that you can tackle even the deepest and most slippery concepts of physics and philosophy in fiction for young readers. It's a great lesson for all writers, and a tough tesseract to follow.” —David Lubar

Book 38 of the year, finished May 15, audio

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.

Last day of our Middle Grade Book Club. Bittersweet. This was our final read. A fun, thought provoking book. I love the themes of this book and the weirdness of it all. Very interested to read the next three. 🌟🌟🌟

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

C.Austin As I stated above, I would love to use this book for LC! This resource would be perfect to give to the students who are reading this book for LC. Definitely going to use this in my classroom! https://www.scholastic.com/content/dam/teachers/activities/migrated-files-in-bod... ESOL Strategy 2: Promote cooperation (small groups).

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.

Kcallihan I have always loved this book and I think you did an amazing job explaining how to use it within a classroom. I think it was very important that you included limiting distractions if allowing students to read this in a group setting. I love the link to the literature circle because I think it‘s very important that every student is assigned a job or else he/she might not feel as inclined to participate. Good job!! :) 2mo

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. 3mo

Decided to add another book to the mix. Needed an audiobook to take proper advantage of the improved weather to do some #audiowalking today!

I really enjoyed Ava Duverney‘s new introduction & hearing Madeline L‘Engle read her own introduction was very special. This new edition is a treat!

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. 4mo
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. 4mo
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. 4mo
DrSpalding Because of the movie, many children read this book last year. They redid the cover and brought it into the 21st-century. What genre? 4mo

My daughter is a biology major at MIZZOU. She‘s taking a course on evolution this semester. I got this text from her today during her class. 😊❤️ A Wrinkle in Time has been one of her favorites since she read it when she was 9 years old. It‘s so funny because I remember having this exact same epiphany when I took my evolution course at university. It made us both love the book even more. #proudmama #science

That‘s what I have to think about. Not about being afraid. Or not as smart as IT. Mrs Whatsit loves me. That‘s quite something, to be loved by someone like Mrs Whatsit.” (226)

The book is definitely interesting, a nice introduction into Scifi for kids. The main character Meg was hard to really like because she is angry and sullen most of the time, but it is an emotion people/kids need to learn to handle and the book addresses it. A solid read but not a favorite. I will probably check out the movie later on.

I so enjoyed revisiting this classic, which I could barely remember from my original reading as a child, through the voice of its author. L‘Engle‘s narration brings out all the dramatics and, yes, whininess of youth, and that increased the charm and grit of the story for me. A Wrinkle in Time continues to challenge easy description, while challenging us all to find acceptance of our faults and courage in darkness.
