Happy Birthday, Auggie!

Versailles Middle School has completed reading 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.
Here is one of my favorite gifts for Auggie...

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.
Stay tuned for details about our Skype visit with R.J. Palacio as well as a special standing ovation for some very WONDER-ful kids!

Happy Reading!
Mrs. T  :)

P.S.  Reading is like breathing chocolate air!
