This term in reading we are diving into a novel study for the book “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio. This week we are focusing on what we can learn about the characters, especially through their dialogue. Characters’ thoughts and feelings can be revealed through their dialogue. This allows readers to make inferences about their internal perspectives and motivations.
We read Part One Chapters 5-7 which was about Olivia’s Brother
The Bus Stop
The Universe Part Six: August
The Auggie Doll
The Ending Part Seven: Miranda
What I Miss Most
Extraordinary, but No One There to See
After the Show Part Eight: August
The Fifth-Grade Nature Retreat
Our first task was to choose dialogue from the relevant chapter and use the dialogue to infer what each of the characters’ thoughts may have been.

Our second task was to imagine we are part of a welcoming committee at Beecher Prep, and create a warm and inviting poster to welcome August, the main character in the story. Our poster had to reflect the school’s values of kindness, inclusivity, and diversity.
