The Page Turners Book Club-Out Of My Mind by Sharon Draper

Out of My Mind is an incredible book about a girl (Melody) who has cerebral palsy and is non-verbal.  It is written from her perspective (hence, the title) and really helps the reader realize that we underestimate those we come in contact with that may have disabilities.  

Here is a link to the Out of My Mind book club lesson plan.

There is an activity at the end of the lesson plan that we didn't actually get around to doing because we had such a long discussion.  It was wonderful-we talked about kindness, people with disabilities, how we often don't realize the potential of those around us, and how to be a good friend.  Perfect for these girls as they navigate the murky waters of 4th-6th grade social life.
