"Auggie & Me" is the companion novel to "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio. It is of high-interest to students because it zooms in on the lives of three children whose lives have been touched by Auggie, a 5th grade student with extreme craniofacial differences. "Ague & Me" has heartfelt, relatable ways of addressing themes of bullying, acceptance, friendship, kindness, and responsibility. Using this novel study, it can be studied as a read aloud, class novel, or small group novel.
The first page of this pdf called the “Learning Window” is for your reference; it includes Common Core Learning Standards for 5th grade, but easily applies to all of middle school. It also includes detailed learning targets.The cover page through the end of the packet can be printed for students. It includes student learning targets, vocabulary surveys, student glossaries, pre-reading activities, claims to be supported with evidence during reading, activities for after reading, and plenty of discussion questions for each section of the novel!
