This Word document is a detailed synopsis of the plot of the Wonder in 'Fill in the blanks' format.
Students demonstrate their understanding of the plot by completing the cloze test. It could be used for assessment or for revision. I use this as we are reading the novel. I ask students to work on this task at the end of every section. This is instead of asking them to write their own summary. As a specialist teacher for weaker students, I find this approach a very useful support for those who need scaffolding to help them focus on core plot elements. All students benefit from knowing the story well, before moving on to more complex and challenging activities.
This is an active learning activity that students enjoy. They see it as a fun task.
There is one page to complete for each of the shorter sections of the book - Three, Five, Six and Seven. Parts One, Two, Four and Eight have two page summaries. In total there are 12 pages for students to complete.
A word bank is provided at the end of each page to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging, and to get students to use their own words.
The solution (12 pages) is also included.
The preview file is the first page of Part One, i.e. the "fill in the blanks" activity, and its solution.
This product is also available as a component in my larger product bundle Wonder Student Activity Pack
