What an amazing book! I never thought I would relate to a 10 year old boy so much. Wonder ( RF) by R.J Palacio takes you through the challenges of a little boy with a facial deformity named August Pullman. Everyone should share this book with their class. I would use literature circles for this book so the children can really discuss all of the aspects together and have healthy discussions.

Jewelwinkler The ESOL strategy I would use is number 48 and 36. The UDL guideline I would use is 7.2. And amazing resource for this book is https://wonderthebook.com/books/wonder. You can even see the book trailer! 1w

This RF book by R.J, Palacio is about Augie Pullman transition into middle school. He was born with a craniofacial abnormality and his parents try to transfer him from home school to a private middle school. It follows him making friends, being bullied, and finding his way in middle school, being accepted for who he is. It won the Young Reader in 2015. #ucflae3414

maciforster This book would be great for IR since it is a chapter book. The students would be able to discuss and read it at their own pace to be able to fully comprehend the book. You could use UDL strategy 3.2 to help develop the relationships throughout the book. Also with EL strategy #2 when doing a discussion to help those struggling along the way 1w

Wonder is a realistic fiction book by R.J. Palacio that is all about acceptance and living your best life no matter what cards you were dealt at birth! This book should serve as an inspiration to all! The movie is great too.. This book would be good for a LC. #UCFLae3414F19

Wonder is an incredible RF written by RJ Palacio. It‘s about a fifth grade student named Auggie Pullman. He was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from making friends because people would judge him, make assumptions, and would effect the way he was treated. This book would fit perfectly for an IR. It discusses so much about bullying which is a big topic in schools now a days.

alexblanco A UDL strategy I‘d use would be to optimize relevance, value and authenticity because bullying and different deformities amongst students are very real and relevant and it‘s important to recognize and value the authenticity of it. An ESOL strategy I would use would be to ask numerous questions which require higher level thinking responses. Since this is a novel, it is important to make sure your students are understanding what they are reading. 1w
alexblanco A website resource I would use for this book would be https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers. I chose this because the lesson plan is all about kindness and that‘s something I‘d really like to promote in my classroom. #ucflae3414f19 1w
AleciaM Great book to start a discussion about bullying. I like the UDL and ESOL strategies that you have chosen for this book. 1w

I really wish there was a rating higher than just “pick” because this is a book that everyone needs to read. August Pullman was born with facial deformities and never went to school because of frequent surgeries. Now he is starting fifth grade and as we all know, it‘s hard to be the new kid. This book would best be taught as an LC to be able to allow for deep conversation between the students. https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers #ucflae3414f19

CPettersen An effective ESOL strategy would be strategy 16 which could be done by having the students do many activities with the book that includes conversations as well as writing. UDL 9.3 could be utilized by asking children questions that allow them to relate the story back to themselves and put themselves in someone else‘s shoes 1w

Wonder is an RF story written by RJ Palacio and is a New York Bestseller. It tells the story of Auggie Pullman, and his transition from being homeschooled to going to a public school for 5th grade. But Auggie is not a normal 5th grader, he was born with a facial deformity. All he wants is to be a normal student. This book follows him and some of the closest people in his life. Covering kindness, bullying, and great life lessons! #ucflae3414f19

Lrobertson This book would be great for a LC! To be able to read and discuss in a small group about this book. A great resource is https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers. UDL 9.3: Develop self-assessment and reflection and ESOL Strategy 3: Encourage self-talk (positive thinking) 1w
KristenScala I loved reading this book for the independent read and I think it would be perfect for a LC. There are many opportunities for students to be able to talk about self confidence, bullying, and many other topics seen in their daily lives. 1w

This is one of the most touching and eye opening books I have ever read. R.J. Palacio writes a fantastic RF novel about a boy named Auggie who grows up looking different, and just wants to be treating normally. I can not wait to see the motion picture made about this book. It is perfect for LC in the classroom. #ucflae3414f19

Jgolub13 I would use the UDL Principle 6.2 support planning and strategy development. I also think that ESOL #6 continually monitor students' comprehension is perfect for this novel. Students need to be able to comprehend the story to truly have their eyes opened. 1w
Jgolub13 I believe that to fully comprehend a story one must put themselves into the shoes of the characters. This activity does just that. They will draw self-portraits of themselves as animals just like they do in the novel. The students will gain a better understanding of the novel by placing themselves into it. http://wonderlessonplans.com/wonder-self-portrait/ 1w
Jgolub13 Wonder has won many awards including Maine Student Book Award, Vermont's Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children's Book Award, Mark Twain Award, Hawaii's Nene Award, and Junior Young Reader's Choice Award

This RF book was fantastic and I believe every student should be introduced to this story in some way. Author Pullman was born with a facial deformity that has always affected his life and how others see and treat him. He was homeschooled until now, when he decides to begin the fifth grade at Beecher Prep. This book would be great for LC. #UCFLAE3414F19

JennaMichelleCohn A great UDL for this book would be 8.1, “Heighten salience of goals and objectives,” since Auggie and his family have one clear goal: for Auggie to be accepted for who he is. A good ESOL strategy would be 3, “Encourage self-talk (positive thinking),” since this story has a lot to do with confidence and self image. 1w
JennaMichelleCohn https://www.storyboardthat.com/lesson-plans/wonder-by-r-j-palacio this website offers some great lesson plans and student activities surrounding kindness, empathy, and self-image as well as more academically-focused topics like character development, themes, and symbolism. 1w
abbie-cadabbie Listening to our peers talk about this book in class made me want to read it so much more! It seems like a beautiful story that all should be informed on. I also think your ESOL strategy of encouraging self-talk is a perfect fit! 1w

Wonder by RJ Palacio is a RF story that was also NY‘s Bestseller. It shares the story of Auggie Pullman, who has a rare facial disease, and his experience of going to school for the first time. This is a great IR book that teaches students important lessons of kindness and bullying. An awesome resource is this site https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers. #ucflae3414f19

cassandram It provides plenty of guides and activities teachers could use while implementing this book in the classroom. I think the theme of this book would be great to include UDL 9.2 and 9.3 on learning coping skills and strategies and develop self assessment. This book shares such an influential story that could help those skills. For a ESOL strategy I would use 3 encourage self talk which aligns perfectly with this book. 1w

This RF, New York Times Best Seller novel by R. J. Palacio tells about a boy who goes by the name Auggie and all he ever wanted to be is look and be treated normally. Since he was born, he had major surgeries done to his face making him look extraordinary which too many people find uncomfortable talking or looking at him. This book goes through different perspectives of people mentioned in the story.

sbombasi After being home-schooled by his mom for four years, this will be his first time going to a mainstream school as a fifth-grader. But can he convince his new classmates that he‘s just like them, despite his appearance? This would be good for an IR with the use of HOT questions or LC with group discussions from resource linked. 2w

This RF book written by R.J Palacio is a great book and truly eye opening. This book was written and then later turned into a major motion picture. I think this book would be great for an LC as it would be great for open discussion. #ucflae3414f19

Erinehart A UDL strategy that I would use for this book is 5.2 “use multiple tools for construction as composition”. This will allow the students to write out important information from the book and comprehend the text better. Doing so students will be able to take notes each week and actively engage in the LC. (edited) 1mo
Erinehart An ESOL strategy that I would use for this text is #9. Teach note taking strategies. By having the students take notes, they are able to see the text through their own text. 1mo

This inspiring RF novel is about a little boy named Auggie who struggles going to school for the first time because he looks different from all of the other students. This book is perfect to use as a PR for 4th-6th grade students. Reading and talking about this book with a peer could help open each others eyes to ideas that the other student may not have though of and allow for multiple perspectives. #ucae3414f19

leximcmillin The UDL principle that would go along with this book is 3.3, guide information processing and visualization. The ESOL strategy that I would use to go along with this book would be #6, continually monitor students progress. Being that it is such a long book, it is important to check in with students and make sure they are understanding the text. Standard: https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewStandard/Preview/5709 1mo

This RF novel, Wonder by R.J. Palacio is perfect for students reading at a 5th-6th reading level. A great teaching strategy would be PR, being able to discuss what happened in the book with a peer will help students digest the information. This book gives an insight into how students who feel or look different enter the school year and all the struggles they face. It is also a great way to teach children how to be kind to others. #ucflae3414f19

YesseniaN This link provides classroom activities teachers can provide for their students. https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers. The UDL principles I would focus on the “why“ of learning since this book contains a lot of feelings, morals, and consequences. Providing that community of open expression and optimize individual choice and autonomy. 1mo
YesseniaN For an ESOL strategy speaking one on one with the student after reading a couple of pages and explaining how Auggie feels and then create a question of self to text with the student for comprehension. 1mo

This RF novel, Wonder by R.J. Palacio, is perfect for an IR for students grades 3-8. This book is about a boy named Auggie who was born with extreme facial deformities. He wants to fit in at school but people can‘t look past his deformities to who he actually is. This book can be used to teach kindness and acceptance for all. This book is a New York Times Best Seller. #UCFLAE3414F19

katiehamlin A link to a page with a few activities you could use when reading this book in the classroom is scholastic.com/teachers/teaching-tools/articles/how-to-use-wonder-to-encourage-kindness-and-prevent-bullying.html# My favorite activity on the page is the wall display you could do in your classroom. 1mo
katiehamlin The EL strategy you could use is 17 (provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language, and facial expressions). This would be an IR so I would supply them an audio book so they can also listen to it as they read along. The UDL principle I would use is 3.1 (activate or supply background knowledge). I would ask if they know or have seen someone who experienced this to make a text-to-self connection. 1mo

Wonder is a realistic fiction story written by R.J. Palacio.
This is a great story about a young boy named August who was born with a genetic defect that has caused his facial features to be severely deformed. This story allows us to see his transition from being homeschool to private school and his journey throughout. This book would work great for IR.
The standard https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewStandard/Preview/5710

BRaulerson will really allow the student to get in depth about the character and how he‘s feeling and reacting to different parts of his journey in life.

The ESOL strategy would be integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. This goes along with the UDL strategy of highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas and relationships. There is so much of August‘s story that we can relate to and listen to and the students will enjoy reading

Wonder by R. J. Palacio is an inspiring RF novel that could be a great IR for your 3-8 grade classrooms. Auggie, a young ten-year-old boy, was born with extreme facial abnormalities and faces the challenges of going into 5th grade after being homeschooled his whole life. He faces his fear and becomes an inspiration for all of the students. This book teaches kids to be nice to each other despite our differences. #UCFLAE3414F19

Camrynm The UDL principle I would use is 9.1: Promote expectations and beliefs that
optimize motivation. I could have them discuss with a small group of what they think is going to happen next and how the book is going to end. The EL strategy I would use would be 9. Teach note-taking strategies: T-lists, time lines etc. This would be helpful for students so that they are able to keep track of what is happening in the book and important details.

Wonder a RF novel by R.J. Palacio is great for the upper elementary level students. Auggie takes us into a world of learning self confidence, acceptance and kindness. The main character, Auggie has a face deformity which is making starting middle school a roller coaster of a ride. He has been used to home school so this is a huge transition! #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein This is a great novel for IR it allows for kids to gain a new mindset in its ideas of the classroom time. Along with having it as an independent read provided is a URL of handouts the students can fill out while reading. This is also great for assessing the child‘s understanding https://wonderthebook.com/assets/downloadables/Wonder_EG_2014_WEB_2.pdf. 1mo
haleyklein The UDL that aligns with this are 3.3 & 9.3 while providing worksheets to keep the students comprehension up to tabs as well as showing them self regulation. EL 17, 29 & 30 these will all help provide extra support due to this being an IR. I would also help alongside to give extra time for the student to also have a chance to read along side me. 1mo

I'm a little late to the party with this one.... But I was determined to read the book before I watched the film. The story of a little boy with facial difference and his first experiences of school. Refreshing, simple and heartfelt. I loved it. I had a version which included bonus material from the team who made the film, and the dedication they all had to the truth of the book just goes to show how it moved them too. More kindness for everyone.
