My students come from all over the district. We are a public school, where parents put their child on the waitlist at 4 years old to go through the school's lottery. We are a school of choice. We are a high performing school, where parent participation is strongly encouraged. Parent support is key to my students' success. We do not receive federal funding. We have to fundraise for anything extra. Common Core Standards are implemented daily, with a lack of materials. It would be great to get more materials.
The book Wonder by R.J. Palacio is one that every student, parent, teacher, and person should read. I read this book to my students last year, and we talked about it all year long. They could not get enough!
The book teaches about how to treat others, choosing to be kind, and that what you say and do matters.
My students will make connections to the life experiences in the book and learn so much from them. We will also be able to practice multiple reading strategies while we read this book together. It would be ideal for every student in my class to have a book in their hands while we experience this story together.
