WEST LAFAYETTE – Kayla Miller is having her third graders at Ridgewood Elementary School do more than just read the book “ Wonder .” “ We are breaking it down and focusing on more than reading and writing ,” she said . “ I want them to learn life lessons from it .” The book features Auggie who suffers from a medical condition that led to a facial difference . He spent most of his childhood being homeschooled , but in fifth grade his parents decided to enroll him at a local middle school . The book follows his time at school as he tries to make new friends and deal with bullies . “ We have discussions about what is happening in the book and what the kids think should be happening ,” Miller said . She also has a game for the students
“ When dependability and service are more than just words .”
