This is a ready-to-use, 51 page packet designed for teachers to use with students in grades 5-8 who are reading Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. It includes a 25 page student workbook, and a separate answer key in addition to optional vocabulary bookmarks and a list of extension topics and websites for both students and teachers. The student workbook divides the text into seven reading assignments of about 40 pages each. With each assignment are 3-4 pages of activities to go along with the text. They include vocabulary reinforcement, recognizing literary crafts such as similes & metaphors, plot & setting, understanding author’s purpose, recognizing point-of-view, explaining one’s thinking, clarifying, demonstrating comprehension, and identifying character traits. The workbook gives students essential practice in constructing written responses. It is designed for independent work thus allowing students to have directed work while the teacher is working on small group or individual instruction. Also, the teacher could use this as a guide for a parent or an aide as they direct a student book club or conduct small group discussions of the book. Questions and tasks in the workbook are intended to prompt high level thinking and quality group discussions. Wonder in a Nutshell: Published in 2012, this book is R.J. Palacio’s first novel and it is truly a wonder! Ten year old August was born with rare facial deformities that have caused his life to be anything but ordinary….and ordinary is what he wishes for more than anything. Auggie feels ordinary on the inside, but he is constantly reminded of his flaws by how people respond when they see him. August displays remarkable understanding toward those who make him feel like a monster and he shows us the bravery it takes to face the world with a severe handicap. One cannot help but want to be a better person after reading this book. This is a story that will touch the heart of every reader. Reading level is approximately 6th grade. Content is appropriate for ages 9-13 (and even older!).
