The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story Read Aloud Resources

Many, many classrooms have read Wonder aloud in their classrooms and rightfully so. This past school year (2013-2014) was no different for us. We started our fifth graders’ year by reading Wonder, and just like countless other classrooms around the country and the world, we used its lessons and themes as a basis for building a strong classroom community. When The Julian Chapter was released in May, 2014 we thought it would be great opportunity to revisit those lessons.

So just like I did for Wonder, I put together some online resources. Once again we used the songs, quotes, and images from the story - along with the occasional mini-lesson - to enhance our reading and understanding of the story. And once again, you are invited to use these resources with your students as well.

Below are links to the original Wonder resources and the added resources for The Julian Chapter. I hope they add to your enjoyment and understanding of both texts.

Thanks for reading and thanks for stopping by this little corner of the web. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please feel free to share them. 


  1. I am so grateful for your resources for Wonder and The Julian Chapter! Thank you for sharing all of your hard work! I have just finished reading Wonder to my fourth graders, and we have started The Julian Chapter. If you haven't gotten it yet, I highly recommend the 365 Days of Wonder precept book. My students have a fit if I forget to share the daily precept. As a matter of fact, we just published our own class precept book to go with it! :) Thanks again, and have a great school year!

  2. Thanks, Ali! I have gotten 365 Days of Wonder, and you are right. It's a great addition to the collection and offers even more insight to Auggie's story.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
