What is this:
This product is a word picture for each of the part of the novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I chose an image of each of the characters speaking in each part and pasted the words from each chapter into the object. The words that are mentioned the most are emphasized by being shown larger. I have pasted these into a powerpoint and included JPEGS.
How I use these in my classroom:
Before reading each part I project the day’s part picture on my Promethean board. I have the students infer/predict what the chapter will be about based on the most used words in the chapter. After the chapter has been read, I have the students discuss the words. I ask them if they feel like any other words should have been emphasized more or what object they would have chosen to represent the chapter.
