This RF New York Times best seller would be great for LC. This book tells the story of Auggie and his experience going into middle school after being homeschooled by his mom. Although Auggie wants to be ordinary, he is truly extraordinary. UDL 8.3 Foster collaboration and community. ESOL 3 Encourage self-talk. #UCFLAE3414F17 #choosekind

AJones Great lesson plan! I like how each day is outlined; very helpful. Auggie is such a brave young man, who continues to go to Beecher Prep despite his daily occurrence with Julian and his gang of misfits. I can‘t believe Mrs. Albans reactions in the book and movie. What nerve. . .she is so ignorant. No wonder her son is so rude. The apple doesn‘t fall far from the tree. #ucflae3414f17 Great book! #WONDER 2y
KayleeC I chose this book for my LC and absolutely loved it. I loved your resource! It‘s such a great book to teach children about kindness. 2y
