What educators are saying

My students loved using this resource. It was a great way to capture their thinking about the book and characters. Thanks so much!
Excellent resource! We used this activity as we read the book. Students completed each character head after we read their perspective.


Wonder by RJ Palacio is the perfect novel to share with your students, and this is the perfect activity to have students complete at the end of the novel to better understand the thoughts of each narrator and to better understand that there is always more than one side to every story.

Within this well-written, attention-holding novel, there are six narrators that share their perspective on their relationship with Auggie and their personal growth throughout the story.

I created this Character Thoughts from Wonder activity to encourage my students to think outside of themselves and reflect on the character from the story. We can get very self-centered and self-focused, while forgetting about how words and actions can both positively and negatively impact others. We need to be considerate and understanding with one another.

Components of this resource include:
• 6-flipbook character pages for student analysis writing
• 24-character analysis cards
• answer key for student evaluation
• directions for easy implementation

Directions for Use:
• Complete this activity as a whole class, small group, in partners, or independently. You will just need to make copies accordingly.
• Print out the Character Heads and Thinking Cards. Each student will need their own set of Character Heads.
• Read the Thoughts in… Card that corresponds to each character.
• Allow students to use markers, colored pencils, or any writing tool to record their ideas in the designated space.
• Fill in the thoughts that would be going through each character’s head after reading each Thoughts in… Card.
• Use as few or as many Thoughts in… Cards as you choose.
• Once students have completed the thoughts in each characters’ head, they can cut, staple, and create a flip book.
• Students can add as little or as much color and detail as the teacher determines. See the sample for ideas.
• The goal is for students to focus on character analysis and empathy while reflecting on how our words and our actions can impact others.
