Harry Potter has no idea how famous he is. That’s because he’s being raised by his miserable aunt and uncle who are terrified Harry will learn that he’s really a wizard, just as his parents were. But everything changes when Harry is summoned to attend an infamous school for wizards, and he begins to discover some clues about his illustrious birthright. From the surprising way he is greeted by a lovable giant, to the unique curriculum and colorful faculty at his unusual school, Harry finds himself drawn deep inside a mystical world he never knew existed and closer to his own noble destiny.

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY!

Over 5 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. 

The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

“Wonder is the best kids’ book of the year,” said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

A New York Times Bestseller

It’s the darkest year yet for Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling’s hero in the Harry Potter series. In Rowling’s fifth book Harry finds himself and Dumbdelore under scrutiny by the Ministry of Magic which refuses to alert the community and acknowledge the terrifying truth that Voldemort has returned.

Harry’s other challenges include:

• Hogwarts having a High Inquisitor
• Facing an overwhelming course load as the fifth years prepare for their Ordinary Wizarding Levels examinations (O.W.L.s)
• Distressing changes in the Gryffindor Quidditch team lineup
• Vivid dreams about long hallways and closed doors
• Ever-increasing pain in his lightning-shaped scar

Harry faces the difficult transition into adulthood, when adult heroes are revealed to be fallible, and matters that seemed black-and-white suddenly come out in shades of gray. Readers, on the other hand, will be thrilled and eagerly waiting for the next title in the spectacular, magical series.

In the remote foothills of southern Sudan thousands of boys live together in a place called Natinga. They are displaced people. The bitter civil war raging in Sudan has claimed the lives of an estimated 1.5 million people and driven more than 4 million others from their homes. Among them are countless children, many of whom have no home left to return to when and if the conflict is resolved. Natinga is the temporary refuge for about 2,000 boys, ranging in age from 8 to 18, from many different tribes. The camp is protected by the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army, a group who is engaged in a fierce battle with the Islamic Arab regime that took control of the Sudanese government in 1983. The rebels claim to want to educate the boys for peace and self-government. School supplies are scarce, however, as are basic necessities such as food and medicine. In addition to the war, disease and famine are constant threats. It is unclear whether these boys will ever return to what remains of their

The revised and updated Teacher’s Guide for Native People of Wisconsin is available Winter 2015, ISBN 9780870207495. This teacher’s guide helps students grasp fully the rich content of Native People of Wisconsin. The guide offers more structured activities that reengage students in the text itself in a manner that diverges from teacher’s guides to our earlier publications. Activities for each chapter focus on interdisciplinary standards-related reading strategies, journaling, and other multidimensional skills that both reinforce and complement the content of the text. Included with the teacher’s guide is an accompanying CD-ROM, produced specifically for Native People of Wisconsin of segments from several of the video series on Wisconsin Studies produced by the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board. Such interactive learning integrates reasoning and reading skills (and state standards) beyond the social studies and promise to make Native People of Wisconsin an essential part of the classroom curriculum.

Since the adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers have been scrambling to find quality teaching materials and legitimate resources that are straightforward and effective in providing help and guidance. Curriculum maps and mediocre district-created handouts offer minimal support for teachers who are struggling to decode and understand multi-layered standards in order to teach the precise skills their students need to master. Laminated checklists that regurgitate standards, found in a simple Internet search, are no more helpful to teachers than ambiguous I can… posters are at reflecting what students actually know and can accomplish. Students urgently need greater exposure to instruction aligned with Common Core requirements, as well as practice in deciphering, interpreting, discussing, and responding to suitable and relevant lessons, activities, and practice assessments attuned to the rigor and demands they will encounter in standardized Common Core assessments. Teachers continue to face mounting pressures to provide these opportunities for their students, yet they are given minimal support and few resources to address these concerns – until now!

Each Secondary Solutions/Simply Novel SmartFlip Common Core Reference Guide for English Language Arts was created with these challenges in mind. These grade-leveled SmartFlip Guides provide teachers with every Common Core ELA standard in its basic format, as well as specific, plain-language, measureable objectives. Annotated standards offer teachers an understanding of the various complexities and levels of entire standards rather than merely single aspects of any given standard. Additionally, hundreds of standard-specific question stems and customizable prompts are provided for each grade level and are ready for immediate integration into lessons, activities, and assessments in order to accommodate diverse teaching and learning styles. Every teacher, school, and district can use SmartFlip Guides to effectively craft and incorporate standards-aligned terminology, content, and rigor into any lesson plan or assessment with genuine confidence. SmartFlip Guides are spiral bound, color-coded, and tabbed to help teachers instantly access any ELA standard. SmartFlip Common Core Reference Guides are the ideal resource for teachers and administrators who are serious about integrating the Common Core into daily lesson plans and assessments, regardless of grade level. No more guessing, no more countless hours researching what the standards actually mean, no more time trying to find specific wording for effective questions. The innovative Secondary Solutions/Simply Novel SmartFlip Common Core Reference Guide is an essential key to the Common Core ELA Standards and the answer for any teacher who is serious about eliminating the confusion and alleviating the pressure of Common Core instruction in any classroom.

When you have pain, you often start feeling bad in other ways, too. You might have low energy, get poor sleep, or have no appetite. You might get in a lousy mood or be bored and worried. You might even feel disconnected or hopeless. When you start to have these problems, being the boss of your body can help. You can practice these body boss skills to take control of your pain:

•    Belly breathing
•    Positive thinking
•    Replacing negative thoughts with positive self-talk
•    Aromatherapy
•    Acupressure

Kids will be happier and healthier when they are the boss of their bodies and can take care of some of their pain on their own. The self-care skills in this book do not replace health care professionals, but they do help kids learn what they can do to take care of themselves. They will learn to deal with headaches, stomachaches, and other pain to make themselves feel better—without always going to the doctor or taking medicine.
