What educators are saying

I used these cards for both discussions as well as written responses. They were a great addition to our novel study of Wonder!

UPDATED 3/15/20 to include a digital version.

I have used these Common Core (CCSS) aligned discussion and constructed response questions for Wonder by R.J. Palacio successfully for several years with fifth graders.

I decided to make cards for a couple of reasons:

1. I made them to save paper. Once you print and laminate these, you can use them for many years in either a literacy center or in small group instruction.

2. I wanted to make them aesthetically more appealing and colorful.

The set contains 24 discussion questions and 6 constructed response questions. I have also included a R.A.C.E.S. chart to remind students to use R.A.C.E.S. when answering constructed response questions.

Although I am a fourth grade teacher and was a fifth grade teacher for many years, I think these questions could work well with 6th, 7th, and possibly 8th graders.
