Learning While Reading!

Help me give my students a class set of Wonder, providing opportunities for my class to do a novel study and grow together while learning what it means to be kind.

My Students

My kids love to read and would love to have more book series to read. They love to draw and express what they read in their books. Books are a way that they get to find themselves and find characters that they can relate to.

They love to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but I would love to find more books that will help them to deepen their vocabulary.

Something that they can use to bring into their writing and research that they do in class. My kids love to read and will read anything they can get their hands on. This past school year, my students read through every set of books I had on my shelf. Having this classroom set of books will help my students to step out and read something they normally wouldn't pick. I want to help them dive deeper into reading, and help them to recognize the skills they learn in my class in what they are reading. I love how much they love to read, and I want to help motivate them to read more!

My Project

With these books, my students will be able to read a book that brings to light what it truly means to be kind to one another and to understand that not everyone is the same. This book will build their vocabulary, and open their mind to thinking in different ways. Having a copy for each student to read, and work through together will help them to build their reading fluency, and open a discussion as a class. The packets we will work on while reading will incorporate the skills they will learn in my class, and help to build on what they learned in previous grades.
