The Wonder of Wonder

As we are getting close to completing our class read-aloud, Wonder, we wanted to share our thoughts about the book. We’ve been with August and his friends for the last month, and we felt like we’ve gotten to know the characters. We settle down in our pillows and comfortable carpet and enter August’s world. His world has shaped some of our discussions. We’ve talked about being kind. We’ve thought about how we would react to someone. We’ve seen videos of people that are different.

The students decided to share their thoughts as we near the end of the book. We’ll be sad to leave August and his friends once we’re finished, but we think everyone has learned a lot along the journey. We hope to share this with schools across the world who are also reading Wonder and to maybe get a chance to talk the author herself, R.J. Palacio.
