Help me give my students copies of, The Watsons Go to Birmingham and The Mighty Miss Malone in the Bud, Not Buddy Series. They are engrossed in conversations about each character's journey in the series. They are craving more!
I admire my 40 multi-age students in grades 3-5. The students are driven by an innate curiosity to acquire knowledge not by discovering one solution to a problem but a plethora of solutions. I love my fierce warriors because they have overcome adversity in education and life. Most of the students are bilingual and receive free or reduced-price lunch.
The students are self-motivated to ask "Why" and "How" questions that intrigue their inner being through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities.
The students take pride in investigating their interests and creatively designing their own authentic learning and mode of instruction. The multi-age students are special because they value "real-life" experiences as 21st century learners in a constantly changing global society. Expressions of success and joy are exhibited as the students plow through a maze of possibilities in the learning process.
The Mighty Miss Malone and The Watsons Go To Birmingham is the next phase in the Bud, Not Buddy main character's journey. From the first time the students encountered Bud Caldwell, they became fascinated with his character.
Bud's adventures keep the students engrossed in reading and sparks authentic interactive conversations about Bud's possibilities for a better life.
The books will evoke emotions and critical thinking about how and why characters change throughout the course of a novel.
The students will work collaboratively to design STEM activities that embody the author's purpose. The ultimate goal is for the students to embrace reading and why it is important in our lives. Let the escapades begin!
