The adventures of a fourth grade teacher in East Central Illinois.

The Wonder of Wonder

Before I say anything, I feel I should explain I am writing this quick post on my phone. Also, this post is going to be short because we are out and about and I don’t have much time. I will probably go back later and edit, putting in links and such.

As you may know, I finally read the book Wonder to my class. I love this story! I was so thrilled when I got to read it on my own and was excited to share it with my students. They loved the story, too, which was the first book I read to my class entirely on our lovely carpet.

We finished Wonder today. I admit, I got a little choked up at the end, but I made it through. It is a wonderfully sweet tale of empathy, friendship, patience, tolerance, courage, and love. If you haven’t read it yet, I strongly encourage you to do so!

Several of my students shared the same thoughts when we finished:

This has been th best book ever!

I am definitely going to read this book to my class next year, but they are going to hear it starting on the first day instead of the end of the year!
