Wonder | R. J. Palacio
The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that has captivated over 1 million readers and inspired a movement to choose kind.I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonderFrom the Hardcover edition.

'Everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their life because we all overcometh the world.'

A really good read, showing both the kind and mean sides of humanity. Didn't see the point in Miranda's chapter, but all of the other characters were written beautifully. Would recommend and will definitely be pushing the movie up my to watch list!

A must-read. As you read Auggie‘s story, you should also be looking at yourself and examining how you perceive others. I like how this story is told from multiple viewpoints because it gives you a chance to see the whole story and to relate with more characters. Not going to lie, I got a little emotional at some points in this book.

#lae3414sp19 “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio is a modern fiction novel about a child born with a facial difference. Due to his facial difference, he could not attend a mainstream school until 5th grade- and all he wanted to do was to be treated like a normal kid. This book is interesting to me because although it starts off with August‘s (the main character) point of view, it then switches to multiple points of view throughout the book.

Kcallihan “Wonder” tells all about a community‘s struggle with accepting others and having compassion. This website provides character activities, theme lists, symbolism explanations, and more: https://www.storyboardthat.com/lesson-plans/wonder-by-r-j-palacio. When teaching this book I would most likely use 8.1, “heighten salience of goals and objectives” 2mo
Kcallihan and state that one of the main goals is that we learn how to better accept one another for how they are. For the ESOL strategy I would use #29, “offer a variety of reference materials at the students‘ level” by providing the students with that web link. That way, they can not only look at it at home to brush up on the information but they can also translate it to their native language if they‘d like. 2mo
Kcallihan I would use LC‘s (literature circles) for this book because it covers some very serious topics that would be best discussed in a smaller group setting. 2mo

R. J. Palacio's "Wonder" is an inspirational, realistic fiction (RF) story that can be used as an option for literature circles (LC) in the classroom! "Wonder" is a New York Times Best Sellers book. If you are a reader who is looking for a feel-good story with occasional tear-shedding moments, then this book is for you! "Wonder" is another novel that was eventually turned into a major motion picture. "Wonder" is about a 10-year-old boy named

caldwellalex95 August, or Auggie Pullman, who has been home-schooled his entire life - until now. Beginning school is intimidating for anyone, but it is especially scary for Auggie because he has Treacher Collins Syndrome, a facial deformity he was born with. How does Auggie's first year in 5th grade play out? Read "Wonder" and discover the ups and downs for Auggie, his family, and friends, as it is told from different viewpoints of each character! "Wonder" is a 2mo
caldwellalex95 great candidate to be used in a literature circle; I would love to discuss with my peers my feelings about the book and the characters, what occurs per chapter, etc. Literature circles provide students with an opportunity to dig deeper into the text. Palacio's official website for "Wonder" provides activities for students to complete once they finish reading the book. ESOL strategy #38 and UDL's comprehension strategy (3.2) can be used in a 2mo
caldwellalex95 literature circle activity, or any of the activities provided on Palacio's website. "Wonder" is a beautifully written story about a young boy with a facial malformation, told by different standpoints of the characters. This novel is a tearjerker, so make sure you have some tissues nearby! Although this story is fictional, there are thousands of families that can relate to "Wonder". I believe it is important for teachers to have this story 2mo

#lae3414sp19 This RF novel by R.J Palacio has quickly become number one on my favorite book list. This novel tells the story of an extraordinary boy, Auggie, through multiple perspectives. Because of this, I was able to take a walk in someone else‘s shoes and learn the importance of being kind. This would be a great after lunch RA in the classroom. Definitely have some tissues handy!

💙 If you love a RF that makes you cry, Wonder is the book for you. In Wonder, we follow the life of August, aka Auggie, who is going to school for the first time in his life. Which is a normal thing that all kids do, except Auggie is entering Middle School and he has a facial anomaly.I believe this book has a message that all students should hear. #LAS3414sp19

ha_kaye It is aimed for ages eight to twelve and would make a great IR, LC, or RA. I can see students loving this story so I would want it to be read in an LC or as a RA, so students can discuss the book together. EL strategy # 16; integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing activities; would be great for either the RA or LC since the student would either be actively reading and discussing with their group or listening to the teacher read. 2mo
ha_kaye UDL principle 3.2; highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships; would work well for Wonder. That could be related to how the parts of the story are told in different perspectives of the same story. https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers is a website from R.J. Palacio herself so teacher should utilize it, if they plan on reading Wonder in their class! (edited) 2mo

I had the pleasure of reading Wonder on my trip to Massachusetts this spring break! I loved this read so much that I read it in the plane, in the airport, or any breaks I took from playing in the snow (yes, that‘s snow in the background). This RF novel is PERFECT for a LC with children grades 4 and up. I feel teachers can even use this as a RA in grades 2-4. Talking about children with special needs is so important!

kennedimartin Wonder has its own websitel! https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers has many free, downloadable resources for teachers to use. Letting children know why we want to learn about this topic and what we hope to get out of this story aligns with UDL 6.1. Allowing children to talk about the book (ESOL 2) and share their personal feelings and experience will also help to make the moral of this story resonate with your class. #LAE3414sp19 2mo

“Wonder” is without a doubt a Young Adult book worth reading to ALL ages. I fell in love with Auggie‘s character - he might not look like everyone else. But he‘s sweet and smart and funny.

Auggie proves it‘s what is inside that matters.

I also thought the supporting characters were phenomenally developed and I loved their support of Auggie. Especially his sister.

Be ready with the tissues when you start this one!

Grab some donuts and the book wonder for a great night in! This Young Reader Choice awarded book is a MUST read!! Be sure to have some Kleenex near by though because some parts will really pull at your heart strings. This book is a great RF about a boy with a rare face disorder who begins his first year of school after being homeschooled his whole life. Read the emotional ups and downs of this book and fall in love with Auggie! #LAE3414sp19

Haleysantucci https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sadlier.com/school/ela-blog/wonder-lesson-plans... has a few lesson plans that help younger kids learn about acceptance of others. I found the kind journal to be the best one on this site. You have the kids keep a journal for 10 days and each day you do something kind to another and write about how it made them feel. I thought it was such a good activity 3mo
Haleysantucci Other lessons on the site include a compare and contrast graph of the different perspectives of Auggie in the book. UDL 9.1 is great for this lesson as we would be listing our expectation to be kind to others no matter what they look like and motivating them through the promotion of that expectation. ESOL strategy 16 would be used as the student speaks kindly to others, listens to feedback and writes about it. 3mo
Haleysantucci This would also be a great book to utilize storytelling by having the kids relate to parts of the book and telling stories of kind things they did like other children in the book. 3mo

Wonder by R. J. Palacio is the type of book you cannot put down! I read it in one day, staying up later than I‘m proud to finish this story. Wonder won the Young Readers Choice Award and was then turned into a major motion picture. This tear-jerking RF is a story that needs to be read in every classroom across America. This book encompasses so many valuable life lessons.

audrey.wilson The most applicable to the standard classroom is “just because someone may seem or look different, it does not mean they don‘t have feelings; nor does it give anyone the right to bully or isolate anyone.”This novel could be utilized in many ways but an independent reading for older grades, 4th and up, would be my recommendation. 3mo

Palacio provides endless examples, and Wonder inspirations for teachers in the classroom. https://wonderthebook.com/assets/downloadables/Wonder_EduKit14_Poster_WEB.PDF this link brings you to a downloadable PDF where you find a yearlong activity for students to participate in. 3mo
audrey.wilson The activity is called “Choose Kind,” and the PDF provides the teacher with ways to incorporate Wonder in different months to teach a different lesson. UDL 7.2 and 9.2 apply for this book and these activities. ESOL strategy 5, 6, and 29. #LAE3414sp19 3mo

Cannot say enough wonderful things about this RF novel! R.J. Palacio retells the life of young Auggie as he struggles with his first days of school. Auggie has a facial deformity which causes others to make fun of him. This story, used as a LC, can promote acceptance and empathy among students. It is no question that this novel was a #1 New York Times Bestseller! ESOL standard #2 would work well with a LC, also paired with UDL principle 8.3.

Wonder by RJ Palacio is by far one of the best RF books i‘ve read about courage, kindness, and acceptance. Wonder highlights ESOL strategies 2,3, 4, 5, 10, 44, and 50. This wonderful story also highlights UDL principles 9.2, 3.2, and 6.2. Students will learn how important it is to be kind, accept one another, and not to judge a book by it‘s cover. There are a variety of new vocabulary, quotes, and phrases used through out the book as well.

karamank This book will have you and your students look from a whole new perspective as you see what it is like to be bullied through out school through the eyes of the main character, Auggie because of a deformity he was born with. Wonder is a great book to use in the classroom to prevent bullying and will teach students many eye opening lessons they can apply to their daily lives. It would make a great book to use as a LC in my future classroom! (edited) 3mo

Morning Readers! I‘m rested and ready to kick up my 24in48 weekend a notch. I always make it 10 hour and some odd minutes, but this time I‘m striving for 12 hours. I‘m also going to finish up some books (hopefully several) I have started but just never finished... first up is Wonder. Here I go!

My daughter attended her very first Book Club meeting this morning and loved it! The group of girls (ages 8-10) met and discussed the book Wonder and then did a craft project to go along with the book. She's already chosen a book and making plans for when it's her turn to host in April.

Mynameisacolour That is awesome! I wish we had a book club for kids where I live. 4mo

When my student found out I hadn‘t read this one, she was horrified and excitedly gave me her copy to read over winter break. I‘m so glad she did! This book is a treasure ❤️
