In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™, we divide the novel by chapters and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text. About the Novel: Wonder is the heart-warming tale of a young boy's struggle and acceptance through middle school. August Pullman is not like every other kid. He was born with a rare facial deformity. Because of this and his constant trips to the hospital, Auggie was always homeschooled. That's about to change as he enters middle school for the first time. Things start off rocky as the other kids stare at him, avoid touching him, and even bully him. But Auggie perseveres and manages to make some friends. What's more, he actually really enjoys going to school. Slowly, Auggie manages to tear down the walls at his school and becomes just one of the kids. By the end, he has not only survived middle school, but overcome it. Wonder is a story of one boy's identity and showing how normal he truly is.
