Mrs. Smith from Las Vegas NV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

It's a Wonder(ful) World for Auggie!

Help me give my students the joy of reading Wonder, a book about a boy who is different and yet the same told from 6 different points of view teaching the value of perspective.

My Students

When students have access to books, they have the opportunity to learn about the world they live in and can experience how things were in the past.

The students I teach rarely read at grade level or speak English as their primary language.

Many of our students have a wide range of learning disabilities, including those on the autism spectrum, emotional disturbances, ADD/ADHD, and other specific learning disabilities. We service 48% Hispanic students, 11% black students, 24% white students, and 27% other, with 23 different languages and dialects spoken by our student population.

My Project

I am asking for physical copies of Wonder to help teach my students about perspective, point of view, and empathy. August (known as Auggie) is a boy who is entering 5th grade and public school for the first time and he's physically different from the others, but still similar in his interests and likes.

Wonder is told from the point of view of Auggie, Via, Summer, Jack, Justin, and Miranda.

It tells the story with the added perspectives of multiple characters allowing the reader to see that there are more sides to a story and sometimes the way one characters sees a situation isn't the same that another one does.
