Wonder is a must read for fifth graders. Students need to learn empathy andinclusiveness. They need to learn to be true to themselves, and not bend topeer pressure in middle school. In my opinion, there is no better book thanWonder to help students think about being upstanders instead of bystanders.Studying Mr. Browne’s precepts helps students evaluate their dailybehavior and encourage them to reach high. In this comprehensive packet,students will use their reading comprehension strategies, while criticallythinking about events, characters, and their reactions in the story. Inaddition, students will start to wonder about what the movie will be like,what parts must be included, how characters should act, etc. There aredifferentiated post-reading activities that will help students synthesize andevaluate their learning, while anticipating what the movie will be like.When the movie does come out, there are critical questions to help studentscompare the book and the movie.
