The LitWits Mini-Explorer’s Guide for Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Wonder is a modern book, and yes, LitWits is all about experiencing old books in hands-on ways. But there’s no question that Wonder is destined to become a classic. It’s already a truly great book, a story that can open up kids’ hearts and eyes for good. So we’ve crossed our boundary of “classic or vintage” to help you make its valuable lessons stick!
This LitWits Mini-Explorer’s Guide is a 40-page PDF, packed with LitWitty ways to make Wonder an extra memorable, meaningful experience for your kids:
- hands-on project ideas and instructions
- creative activity ideas and directions
- printable templates and materials
- printable handouts for creative and essay writing
- printable handout for defining and illustrating the narrative arc
(Teachers, if you need copies of Wonder for your classroom, we recommend BookPal for ordering 25+ on a budget.)
The ideas and materials in this mini-explorer’s guide are best suited for grades 5-8, but they work for mature 4th-graders, too. You know best what your kids are ready for, interested in, and capable of. (See the Ways to Use tab for classroom and homeschool uses.)
Common Core Alignment
