This is a no frills comprehensive Novel Study. This was created and used in my fifth grade class. This novel study comes with an answer sheet for every chapter. Wonder lends itself well to be used in a classroom as the chapters are so short. Each answer sheet addresses three to four vocabulary questions from the section as well as the page number to find it, literary questions that pertain to the events of the story, inferential questions to challenge students' thinking and comprehension, and also opinion questions.
The way that I used these is that students would read the chapter and answer the questions, either independently or in pairs. The next day, we would reread aloud, discuss, and go over the answer sheet. This way, even struggling readers are scaffolded for success.
My kids LOVED this book and did excellent with the question format. They really got used to the set up and I was very happy with their performance and growth.
This is a great novel to use in a classroom as it lends its self well to point of view discussion, empathy, character and anti-bulling messages, and character development.
