The last twenty minutes of our meeting, the students created mosaics out of tissue paper that represented what Wonder meant to them. We had a short period of time to work, but the students enjoyed creating their symbols and scenes. Here are a few examples...
Wonder has taken our school by storm! Since participating in the faculty book club, many of our teachers have been reading Wonder aloud to their classes. It is a hot commodity in the library, and the hold list is a mile long. Thank you Ms. Palacio for a beautiful book that transcends all things to make us see that on the inside we all have the ability to be the same no matter what we are like on the outside.
Tomorrow, we will be moving on to Divergent by Veronica Roth. This is another must read, for what my opinion is worth. I spent my weekend re-reading Divergent, and I have loved it every bit as much as I did the first time around! We will be wearing the colors of the faction we believe we would belong in so stay tuned for pictures!
