Happy Tear, Student, 5Th Grade, Kids But, Kids Book
Wonder - my 12 year old daughter insisted I read this and I'm so glad she did. Made me cry twice - 1 sad one and 1 happy one - love when books make me do that. I think I might add this to my list of books I read aloud to my students.
Wonder...read even tho its a kids book. All kids should have to read this.
if you want to read a book that can be heartbreaking, but bring you to happy tears, this is it...
August Pullman was born w/ a facial deformity that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid -but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, & others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle w/ empathy...

Grade 7-History: In 1991, mountain climbers on the Niederjoch Glacier on the Italian-Austrian border came across a very different type of body. It had been a very warm summer, and five bodies had already turned up in the area. But the materials found with this body suggested it might be very old, perhaps from the 1800s. But radiocarbon dating proved the iceman was 5,300 years older, from the Copper Age. He was named Ötzi and he is the oldest human mummy preserved in ice ever found.

I would use this book for grades 3rd-5th.
