I WONDER How 5th Grade Can #ChooseKind From Wonder!

My students need the amazing book Wonder for a novel study we will complete after the FSA testing ends. This book will teach my 5th graders valuable life lessons in kindness and friendship.

My Students

In my Title IV school, I have the pleasure of teaching 43 amazing students who vary in academic level but all bring unique and interesting qualities to the table. My classroom is full of talents, excitement, energy and eagerness to learn. My students are eager to absorb new knowledge everyday and amaze me with their skills and desire to become better individuals each day! I hope that this novel will teach my students to #choosekind, appreciate their flaws as well as their peers', and solidify the idea that we are all different, but that is what makes us special.

My Project

My students will benefit from reading the book "Wonder" and completing the assignments that accompany it, because these will not only solidify content they have learned all year in language arts, but will teach them lessons in life they need to become stronger in. Some of my students have been exposed to bullying, racism, prejudice, inequality or have been the culprit in these situations, and I think that this story will open their eyes to how important it is to #bekind.

The activities I have planned to correlate with the reading of the story as well as prior to and after finishing it, will only reinforce the idea that bullying should never be the answer and that everyone is unique and we should celebrate this rather than make a person feel inferior.

My hope is that this experience will teach my students to appreciate and celebrate their flaws as well as others'. As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent", and I hope that this novel can teach that to my wonderful scholars!
