Wordless Wednesday Linky Party

I'm linking up with Christine from "Sugar and Spice," for a Wordless Wednesday linky party!

Here we go!

Wonder, written by RJ Palacio, is one of my favorite read alouds. 
I've done a nice novel study. We've created lapbooks. 
My class wrote individual precepts and then we made a class book as a keepsake.
Any fresh ideas on teaching this text in the intermediate grades?


  1. I'll have to take a look at this book. I'm not familiar with it. I'm always on the look-out for middle school appropriate titles.


  2. Wonder was released a few years ago. It is the story of August, who was born with a facial disfigurement, and was homeschooled up until fifth grade, when he started attending regular school. The big topics include bully and acceptance, but my favorite part is that the story shifts perspectives, and you get to hear from all of the main characters. It's really heartwarming and the students have some deep, meaningful discussions!

  3. Have you tried role playing the characters? Or having them make up their own scenes using other types of stereotypes.

    1. Those are great ideas! We did a wax museum last year as a grade level, and I had kiddos choose Wonder to make a scene for, but they were frozen and couldn't speak. Playing out scenarios would be fun! I'd have to be careful with my silly boys though...2/3 of my class are boys and they are WILD!
