PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is great for creative writing! I remember doing a mock newspaper as a kid; I thought it was so fun to pretend like I was in that time period or in the book. Writing from the character's POV is a great way to have a mini lesson on tone and mood. This is a good opportunity to also have your students learn about "Show don't tell." They can write from the character's perspective and say a lot about the character's feelings and thoughts by what they write. This is also a nice opportunity for the students to refer back to the book to look for text evidence and support their findings. The writing style and prose will change depending on the book and topic. Enjoy!


This activity focuses on Wonder by: R.J. Palacio. This story is about a boy named August who has a facial deformity. He decides to enter school for the first time and deals with negative reactions from his peers. Yet, he is able to make friends and August and his peers grow from the experience.

The 3 writing prompts include:
→Write for the perspective of August Pullman. What does he think and feel about going to school and making friends?
→Write from the perspective of Jack Will. What lessons has he learned from befriending August?
→Write about a time that you were bullied or a time that you bullied someone else. How did it feel? What happened?
