I really hope you enjoyed the section of the book yesterday. I loved reading your information about the main character. You all found the key information that I was hoping for. Today, read the next section of the text found in the links below.
Once you have finished - go back to the chapter titled: Driving. How would Auggie feel about being a 'lamb to the slaughter' and 'going to school'. Give reasons for your thoughts - use the text to prove your point of view. You can also use yesterdays reading to support your answer.

Read the opening few pages of Wonder by R.J.Palacio. Dated in the files below - Remember to clarify any unfamiliar words or phrases. From what you have read can you write ‘What I know about the Main Character’. I want a passage that tells me what you have learnt from the text. Such as name, appearance, personality, family etc.
