Bring Wonder to Life

My students need copies of Wonder to have inspiring current literature to promote a love for reading.

My Students

It's hard to only use 80 words to express why I love my students. They bring so much joy and perspective to my life and many others. They care about each other and our community. Although they come from different backgrounds when someone is in need or they learn of injustice they are eager to lend a hand. Most of all I have learned from my students to not let boundaries hold us back from the dreams of our future.

My Project

The students love the book Wonder and the message it teaches about character. Having this gift will mean that I can put a copy in each student's hands and they won't have to share with 2-4 other students at a time. My students are engaged and actively participate in discussions while reading this text. They reflect on current and past experiences and what they can do to be better members of society. My students enjoyed comparing and contrasting the book with the film as well. It teaches them to appreciate how much more the text can bring to character development and taking the time to read the book is totally worth it!
