Mr. Diaz from Fairfield CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

WONDERful Class!

My students need this book, it has inspired and helped so many classes across America. A teacher once told me about Wonder by R.J. Palacios and how it impacted her class!

My Students

I have an amazing group of students! They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

The way the book WONDER encourages students to not judge a book by its cover is remarkable. I have seen this book turn students' lives around.

It is an impacting story that promotes KINDNESS.

Kindness does matter in this ever changing world, and our students our the future. We need to teach them about being kind. What better way to do it than through a book that also teaches literature like "point of view" and "inferences".

It would mean the world to my students for each of them to have their own copy of Wonder. We are at a Title I, low income community. They rarely receive new materials. I think it's time that changes. I know for a fact I will read this book with my future students for years to come.
