Wonder, written by RJ Palacio, is the story of August (Auggie), a boy born with a facial disfigurement. The tale unfolds, told from various perspectives, as August begins fifth grade attending school for the first time. It is a wonderful text to tie in character education, discrimination, treatment of others, and empathy.
- The student packet includes 16 pages of questions that align with each chapter, as well as options for culminating writing pieces.
- The parent guide is two pages and contains all precepts from the text, as well as discussion questions for home learning.
- The lapbook directions include student directions, teacher directions, and quotes. When creating a lapbook, it is your job, and the job of your students, to create your own foldables.
***I would highly recommend pairing this text with Firegirl by Tony Abbott. There are many overlapping theme and connections for students to make.
