Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Even though the reading is over, the lessons and discussions continue.
On October 10, sixth grade students celebrated Auggie's birthday. The students brought in cards and gifts for him. Whether it was a new puppy or a Star Wars art set, the students showed that they knew Auggie and thought about what he would like best.
After sharing their gifts, students celebrated by singing to Auggie and eating cake! While I do not have any pictures of my homemade cakes (including the one with smooshed icing because my daughter's gym bag landed on top of it during our ride to school that morning), I do have this picture of AUGGIE COOKIES! Our fifth, seventh, and eighth graders ate these yummy cookies baked by Aunt Julie's Cookies and More.

P.S. Reading is like breathing chocolate air!
