What books did we use in this lesson?
We used a few, but here are the main ones:
R.J. Palacio's Wonder follows the school life of a boy, Auggie, who has an extraordinary facial difference, and is attending a mainstream school for the first time in grade 5.
Boy is Roald Dahl's memoir of his childhood, featuring sweet-shops, mean old ladies and a Great Mouse Plot. We also used snippets from Roald Dahl's novel the Fantastic Mr Fox, about a fox who cleverly outwits a band of farmers.
In Jasper Dash and the Flame Pits of Delaware, boy technonaut Jasper Dash and his friends go on a grand adventure full of lost cities, tentacles, gangsters and dinosaurs.
The Giver is about a boy who has been chosen to remember and experience individuality and emotion in a world where all variation has been eradicated.
