We're all Wonders

Help me give my students an opportunity to interact with text in their homes during distance learning.

My Students

Currently, my students are relying on me to read books to them, virtually.

This is a result of us not having access to a common, shared text.

While listening to fluent reading is beneficial to students, my students need to approach reading from a variety of ways. At the fifth and sixth grade level, it is also crucial that they read texts independently to build upon their own decoding and fluent reading skills.

Since public libraries are closed, and school libraries are not able to circulate the book sets that they have, due to COVID, my students are left empty-handed when it comes to books. As their teacher, I've had to adjust our learning plans for the rest of the year, which included a quick redirect to reading a text that I haven't used before, and don't have access to on a large scale.

My Project

Our school year ended very abruptly and didn't leave teachers time to plan ahead and send students home with things. Many of the projects I do at the end of the year have been put on hold or canceled. In light of this, I have been doing my best job to come up with experiences that would be meaningful from afar.

Books have a way of uniting people.

By getting all of my students a copy of the book, Wonder, they will be able to feel a sense of normalcy in our distance learning days. These books will be something to make them feel like we are actually in school learning together again, rather than asynchronously.
