Bud, Not Buddy
Along with the novel, students read the 2006 Commencement Address given to Stanford University by Steve Jobs. While making connections between the two texts, students focus on higher-level thinking questions, figurative language, vocabulary and making real-life connections.
If you obtain any box tops throughout the year, please send them into school. We have collected a lot so far!

In order to show generosity in a productive and helpful way, the students have set a goal of donating 10 food items that can be used towards the Snack Pack Program. I have explained to both of my classes that this is a goal, not a requirement.
Some items we discussed were Ramen noodles, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, Chef Boyardee, granola bars, soup and peanut butter and jelly.
The students watched the video below and discussed how both teams displayed generosity by letting Tyler score a touch down. I had the pleasure of attending this game and it was truly inspirational!
