Big thanks to everyone that sent in a picture of their first read aloud. A lot of lucky young readers out there.
I love to see all the books that teachers started off the 2012-2013 school year reading to their students. It was great to see Wonder in so many classrooms. Auggies message is so powerful and can be brought back for further discussion throughout the year. In my 5th grade classroom, I’m waiting to read this amazing book until January or February for the simple reason that I can’t find a better book to read after I read Wonder. Thank you RJ Palacio.
Awwwww….. meant to send a shot. Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco. I love how many of you out there are reading Wonder. What a great story!
My gosh…that was awesome. I cannot wait to get a book club started at my local library, or seeing if the school is interested. #thewonderofwonder is rocking the read alouds! Thanks for sharing this.
Very cool! I love the teacher reading community!
Lots of “wonder” there, & other beauty, too. Thanks!

So many terrific beginning of year books!
This was great. I embedded it in a blog post (http://medinger.wordpress.com/2012/09/03/in-the-classroom-my-first-read-aloud-of-the-year/) and someone asked for a list of the titles. Any chance you have one?
GREAT video and song! I too would love a list too if possible, as some were a little difficult to see. Thanks!
Super duper. I need to look up some of those books. Great choices.
I love your video clip of First Read Alouds. Is it possible to send me all the titles which the teachers read? I’m planning to show this at a beginning of the year faculty meeting. It’s easy to read most of the titles, but some are unclear.
Thanks in advance.

Madison Public Schools,
This was just so awesome! Thanks for creating it! I noticed a lot of teachers read Wonder! Great choice!
This is awesome. Reblogging it on my page. Hope that’s ok!
I loved it as well. I am reading Wonder and my students are loving it. I would really like a list of the books because I couldn’t see some of the titles. Please!
So many great picks! I love this video, who can watch it without smiling?! Thank you!

What is the name of the song and artist you used in this video? Can you let me know?
