My Drear Forth Grade Friends, I am so happy to have had a chance to read your blogs at MACUL. My students at West Utica Elementary also have blogs. They help us to share our views of the world with others. Sometimes my student struggle to understand why the world can seem to be so unfair. Why do some people have to face the challenges of growing up disabled or in poverty? Reading your blogs shows me that even though you are young, you're growing in empathy for others. They give me hope for the future . Keep it up! Amber Fante

Hi my name is Lilly, and this precept connects to me because, I can only be on earth for a certain time, and I have to enjoy it while you can. This precept connects to Wonder because Jack Will was not being very nice, and I think that he wasn't treating Auggie nicely. According to the text, Jack Will said that he would kill himself if he looked like Auggie. I don't think that Auggie will have a very nice life, but if he keeps trying, then he will have a great life. When Auggie was born everybody thought that he was not going to live through the night, but God blessed him with that ticket to life and to live for a reason.
The precept that I chose is "The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." This precept connects to me because sometimes I wonder why I was I born. What did God send me down from heaven? This precept connects to Wonder because since Auggie was born with a craniofacial anomaly, and he wonders what he was created for. Finally, this precept connects to the world because people were born form for various reasons, and they wonder why.
I think the ticket to life is the greatest thing on earth, because you get to have so many opportunities and if no one was on the earth, the world would be empty and dull. There would also be no interaction. I think this precept connects with August, because he was not going to survive when he was born. But God gave him the ticket to be on earth.
The precept that I chose for this blogging session is "Life is a ticket to the greatest show on Earth." This precept was spoken by Martin H. Fischer. This precept connects to me because throughout life, there are going to be great things happening! This precept connects to Wonder because Auggie may not have the greatest life, but Summer shows him that "Life is a ticket to the greatest show on Earth."
This precept connects to me because, if you actually try and fail your still better then those who don't do anything and succeed. So if in gymnastics I fail on a trick, but my friend succeeds with doing nothing to practice, and practiced a lot on that trick. This precept connects with August because, some times his surgeries don't work out but he is still better then those who are doing nothing and accomplishing it. Does this precept connect to you?
