2nd-Grade Atoms Begin New ‘Read To Them’ Book

Student Teacher, Ms. H, reads the story book, ‘We’re All Wonders’ to the Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school 2nd-grade students.

Monday, May 2nd, 2022Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship 2nd-grade students are all wonders! As they begin their new 'Read to Them' book, 'We're All Wonders,' by R.J. Palacio, the students reflect on what kindness means to them.

The story, 'We're All Wonders,' is about a boy named Auggie, who is like any other child but looks a bit different due to his facial deformities. Since Auggie looks different from other children, many of his classmates make fun of him and treat him with disrespect. When this happens, all Auggie wants to escape on an adventure with Daisy to a world where he feels like he belongs.

Student Teacher, Ms. H, read to the Atoms the story and discussed the story's central theme - choosing to be kind to others above all else. Following the story, all the Atoms and teachers in 2A pledged to choose kindness even when it's hard, when it goes against our friends and when we're feeling bad.
