Ms. White’s Class is Choosing Kind!

Ms. White’s Class is Choosing Kind!

As a class read aloud, we have begun to read Wonder. Students have been enjoying following along with their individual class copy. As we are reading, we are noticing the different themes that come across throughout the book. This is integrating well with our reading workshop unit. Students have been practicing determining different themes and proving their thinking with text evidence. They are practicing this both orally as well as in written response questions. Some main themes that have occurred so far are: acceptance, friendship, and courage. Students have also been comparing and contrasting some of the main characters in the book such as: Auggie, Summer, Jack Will, and Julian. Students are quickly learning to love the main character Auggie and all that he brings to the book! One of our favorite quotes from the book so far is, “When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind!”
