Mrs. S. from Stamford CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Listen and Learn from Auggie & His Wonder Friends

My students need Playaway/audio books to continue their love of reading about Auggie from Wonder. I have been checking out the playaways from our local library, & my students can't wait to sit and listen.

My Students

Our school is a magnet elementary school. We have students from various socioeconomic backgrounds. Our focus is arts and problem solving, and are K-5. I teach 5th grade. We also ability group for reading and math class, which means my homebase students will have the possibility of having 2 or 3 different teachers. I teach a total of about 42 different children in one day since my reading and math students are not the same as my homebase students. I am also on a grade level team of teachers who all work together to differentiate our district curriculum to fit the needs of our various students.

My Project

My 5th-grade class has focused on reflecting on the life lessons shared in the book Wonder. Together we have read Wonder and the entire grade level of over 100 students went to see the movie in the theater. In our classroom, we have a listen to reading station we have been checking out playaways/mini audio books from the local library. We would love to have our own collection of playaways so we can be inspired by the additional stories told by the other characters from Wonder. These audiobooks will continue the love of the Wonder story and the life lessons shared.
