Pairing up the book and movie Wonder with some Wonder lesson plans is awesome way to add fun to your learning!
Reading a book and then watching the movie as a homeschooling project allows us to compare and contrast (which did one you liked better), as well as opens a deeper discussion on the topic matter.
And, the Wonder movie discussion questions (and the book) provides a range of topics (plenty to keep you busy)!
We plan on doing this with the Wonder movie, reading the book, and then using some awesome Wonder lesson plans and activities to supplement our learning.

Wonder is a children’s novel by author RJ Palacio.
(Isn’t that Wonder book cover fantastic?)
The lead character in Wonder, Auggie Pullman, is “an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face.”
Auggie is born with a rare condition called mandibulofacial dysostosis, or Treacher Collins Syndrome.
The distorted facial features prevented Auggie from attending traditional school and he has been homeschooled instead.
But, in fifth grade, Auggie enrolls in public school.
Along with being the new kid, Auggie also encounters different situations due to his condition, including a rumor that touching Auggie will give you the “plague.”
The book switches from Auggie’s point of view to different perspectives, including Auggie’s sister and different friends, and the things that they are dealing with along with Auggie.
While dealing with extraordinary circumstances, Auggie wants nothing more than to be treated as ordinary.
