#1 The students could choose to design a Wonder poster
#2 The students could choose to have a conversation with their parents about the book and then write about it. The second piece was that the parents must right about the conversation also.
#3 The students could answer questions about the book and connect their answers to their life.
The class divided almost into perfect thirds which excited me because I tossed the "conversation" idea out just to see if anyone would take it. As a class, we developed our themes for the book and discussed how the book was organized from that criteria I allowed them to use that information anyway they chose too.
WOW to say I was super impressed was an understatement. Several times I was moved because I learned so much about my students that I never would have learned in a verbal conversation. If you have not read Wonder to your class, I highly suggest it.
|Our hallway display is very popular with other students are reading the book.|
