Thankful Turkeys

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, there were several suggestions posted on Facebook that involved turkeys. One that appealed to me was one using Google Draw to create a turkey.

Multimedia Essentials via CAPE (CIW)

Day of Wonder 3

Another day of Wonder and we read about Auggie’s first day of school. He managed to make it through his classes, found a friend at lunch and made it home. Being a new kid in school cannot be easy. Looking a little different would make it even harder. Summer is currently one of my favorite

Day 2 – WONDER

Today we read about Auggie’s tour of his new middle school, Beecher Prep. We also got to meet three more characters who are throughout the story: Julian, Jack Will, and Charlotte.
