Happy Birthday Auggie Pullman!

Celebration Monday!

The protagonist of Wonder, Auggie Pullman, has a birthday today! In honor of him, and the final pages of our novel study, we will be celebrating on Monday during our class period! Students are welcome to bring an individual snack and drink (or something to share) to enjoy while we finish the last chapters of the original publication of the book.

In 2014, two years after Wonder was published, author R.J. Palacio, released The Julian Chapter. In 86 pages, it tells the story of Wonder from the point of view of the bad kid in the book—the bully. Tuesday we will begin listening to the audio recording of this chapter. Students will be shocked at a connection that is made to an unrelated novel they read in the 4th grade.

Students should actively working on their novel study booklets! Oh the pains of waiting until the last minute! Help them be responsible by asking to see their work!
