"Wonder" Literacy Chat featuring @avillalon4 and @CarrollColts

Recently, my 4th grade ELA teacher approached me and out of the blue, told me that she had set up a Literacy Chat with a 4th Grade teacher at a neighboring elementary campus. She mentioned that students would be discussing the book "Wonder."After the initial excitement of hearing that she set it up all on her own, we sat down and talked about how she wanted it to flow. After talking it over with her class, students wrote in depth questions that they would be asking the other class. Both classes were extremely engaged in the discussion! We were both worried that there would be a lot of awkward silence, however, there was anything but that! Once students were done, they reflected on a shared Padlet.
