What educators are saying

This is a very thorough resource that is aligned to many different common core standards. Very pleased with this purchase!
This is a WONDERful resource to use while teaching the book. It challenged my Resource students to write complete sentences and think outside of the box while processing what we read. Thank you!

    Get all of my "Wonder" products for the "Insight into Characters" and "Interpreting Characters" common core units at a discounted price! This BUNDLE contains the "Wonder" Common Core Unit Student Packet, Assessment, Exit Slips, and Learning Target Mini Posters.

    Use the student packets along with the "Insight into Characters" and "Interpreting Characters" units by Oakland Schools. The unit is based on the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. The original free lesson plans and Common Core reading standards that are covered in the unit can be found at the following web address (Lesson plans can be found when clicking at the link at the bottom of the page):

    Insight into Characters Unit 2013 Version

    The packet includes a blank Building Theories About Characters chart, a page for each section of the book that is read aloud with questions, prompts, and a section for journal entries, and pages to use to teach about point of view.

    The latest version of this unit has you begin reading aloud Wonder during the first unit (Reading With Power). So this bundle now includes a second version of the packet where the response to the read aloud is separate. Those lesson plans can be found at the following address:

    Interpreting Characters 2015 Version

    The exit slip pack includes an exit slip for each lesson of the unit along with an answer key.

    The mini posters correspond with each lesson of the unit. Each mini poster gives an "I can..." learning target based on the teaching point of each lesson. All learning targets are written in kid-friendly language.

    The student assessment for the end of the unit and an answer key is included as well.

    All of this for more than 10% off the total price if you were to buy each product individually.

    Interested in another approach to this unit that incorporates teacher modeled think alouds during oral reading as well as close reading? Check out my other Wonder unit at the link below:
