Wonder is an amazing and incredible fiction book about a young boy named August (Auggie). Written by R.J. Palacio, this heartwarming book will have you in tears! It is about Auggie‘s disability called craniofacial abnormality and how he cops with life at a new school with it! We see the world through his eyes in this book. You need to read this and witness all of the different emotions along with Auggie!

JessicaO You will love having this book in your classroom! This book can be used for IR and LCs. You can also read it aloud to the class for them to process the story deeper. UDL 2.1 would be best because there are going to be words or phrases that are hard to understand. Scaffold this information for yo it students. ESOL strategy #2 would be great to get the ELL‘s in a small group and really talk about this book in depth for better understanding. (edited) 3y
JessicaO Here is a link from Scholastic that tells you different ways you can use Wonder in your classroom!

Nkaufmann I chose Wonder for my individual reading book so I am even more excited to read it after your post! I agree with you in that ESOL strategy #2 would work with this book as students could get into small groups and talk about what stood out to them in the book, unfamiliar vocabulary words, etc. 3y
bsiqueira What a beautiful story. This book is such a wonderful addition to a classroom and is jam packed with lessons. It would make a great IR. Your UDL and ESOL strategy are perfect! 3y
DrSpalding #choosekind is a movement that you can follow on social media. Teachers have used this # to promote kindness in their classrooms. This book has a powerful message. Your resource is excellent. There is also another resource just for this book! https://wonderthebook.com/books/wonder 2y

“Wonder” By R.J. Palacio is a beautiful and very heartfelt RF read! This book is a New York Times Best Seller and would work great in the classroom as an IR or in groups for an LC. The book is about a young boy named August (Auggie) who was born with a facial deformity and goes to public school for the first time! This book follows through his journey in school and the reader sees the different perspectives of the people around Auggie.

Viviannef UDL principle 2.2 Clarify syntax and structure and ESOL strategy 10 Teach think, pair, and share strategies in cooperative groups. Students will be able to discuss the author's style of writing and the different points of view when the perspective changes throughout the story. 3y
Viviannef https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers - This website is from the author herself, providing downloadable teacher resources with great questions that can facilitate conversations in LC. It also provides activity sheets and cute ways that students can express #choosekind #ucflae3414su20 3y
DrSpalding You know the books are fabulous when they have their own website. Good use of a quality resource. I have several students that are now teachers that have the #ChooseKind program in their classrooms. 3y

Figured the #choosekind tip of the week was more than appropriate to share here.
If you do it, tag me so I can see a chain of book swaps begin!!

smilingshelves I actually did this! About a month ago, a former student asked to borrow The Art of Racing in the Rain so he could read it before watching the movie. When he saw me Monday, he assured me he would return it soon. I told him he could keep it. He was so excited! 3y

A recipient of the Sunshine State Young Readers award, Wonder is written by R.J. Palacio. A RF about 10 year-old Auggie, who lives in Manhattan. He was born with facial deformity and is starting to attend school. The book take on view points from different characters and could be used for a LC. #ucflae3414su19

SarynaN https://createteachshare.com/2017/03/a-new-favorite-were-all-wonders.html This site includes a printable writing prompt to accompany the book. It asks students to consider how we are all wonders. The book and activity will cover ESOL strategy 36 and UDL 9.3 4y
Kcompton2912 I love the writing prompt you provided in your post. I think this would be a great lesson where a teacher does a RA with the book, follows it with the movie, and then ends with the prompt! The book will definitely challenge the thinking of young readers and there viewpoint of the world/others! 4y
DrSpalding Using great books like this to springboard a writing activity is an excellent idea. We are all wonders! #ChooseKind 3y

365 Days of Wonder: Mr.Browne‘s Book of Precepts written by R.J. Palacio is a fiction book that has inspiring quotes for every day of the year. The quotes range from history, love, friendship, courage, and kindness. This would be a fun thing to do with the class as a bell ringer. We could start the morning by reading a quote and then writing about it or the teacher can simply ask comprehension questions about it. #ucflae3414su19

DeannaP https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Comprehension-Questions-for-365-Days... An ESOL strategy to go with the lesson is to “continually monitor students comprehension” the teacher can do that by having the students write the quote and what they think it means in a journal. 4y
DeannaP An E.D strategy to go with it is to “highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships” since they would be finding the main idea of the quote and comparing it to their background knowledge. 4y
DrSpalding This is such a fabulous book. Did you know there is an app? Its called The Daily Wonder App!

"Choose Kind” is not just a saying, it is a way of life. A amazing and tear jerking F novel by R.J. Palacio that reaches beyond the words on pages an into the heart of the readers. While reading this book, I cried three times and I just want to read it again! I have nothing but praise for little Auggie.

#LAE3414SP19

JessicaRosell A great way to explore this book is with IR, LC, SR, PR. https://wonderthebook.com/for-teachers Provides an amazing collection of lessons and activities to use with Wonder! Using UDL strategies 9.2, 8.3by fostering collaboration and personal coping skills. With ESOL 6, monitoring student comprehension, and 9 using note-taking strategies. 4y

This emotional RF book by R.J. Palacio is great to use for a LC or even a RA throughout the semester/unit. I think it‘s important for children to embark on the journey Auggie takes us, and see that it‘s not what‘s on the outside that counts, but what‘s on the inside. We don‘t need to judge a book on its cover, but by the contents. Auggie sees the world in a better way than most of us do, and his story proves it. #UCFLAE3414SuB18

prissy.mooney wonderthebook.com/for-teachers is an awesome site for teachers to see how to teach the lessons and themes that were present in the book, how to make a difference in the classroom, talk about craniofacial differences, and even download various resources to use inside and outside of the classroom. 5y
prissy.mooney UDL 6.3 allows for the opportunity to facilitate managing information and resources while EL 16 integrates speaking, listening, reading and writing activities 5y
RossoS I loved this book!! I really liked the resource because it provided some great ideas on activities that I‘m most definitely going to share with my students👍🏼 5y
