Wonder Writing Prompts Video Clips is a ready-to-use resource that will help your students make connections to their reading of Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Students will watch a short video clip on YouTube that relates to a topic, theme, or idea presented in the novel. A related journal prompt is included and students share their thoughts and ideas in writing. The videos are not specific to the novel, but they relate in a way that allows students to make a text-to-self or text-to-world connection.

Included in The Wonder Writing Prompts Video Resource:

➡️ A PowerPoint presentation that includes links to eight videos that connect with topics, themes, or ideas presented in Wonder by R.J. Palacio. The video clips are broken down by part and include a link to the video and a related prompt. The parts are as follows:
  • Part 1: August
  • Part 2: Via
  • Part 3: Summer
  • Part 4: Jack
  • Part 5: Justin
  • Part 6: August
  • Part 7: Miranda
  • Part 8: August
The videos are under five minutes long. They are not about the novel specifically, but they connect to something that happens in the chapters in either content or theme. This allows students to make text connections between what happens in the novel and their own life or the world around them. Access to YouTube is required for this purchase.

How to Use The Wonder Writing Prompts Video Resource:
  1. After students have read the appropriate chapter set, play the video clip in class and share the related prompt.
  2. Give the students 5-10 minutes to respond to the prompt in writing.
  3. Split the students into groups and have them share their writing and discuss the prompt, or discuss it as a whole class.
