Pick-up Game

by: Kasseem

Boo, the protagonist in Pick-Up Game, by Marc Aronson has a few traits that influence Boo's relationships with others.

One, Boo is Determined. Two, Boo is Hardworking. Three, Boo is Devoted.

These traits influence Boo relationships with others. “ Boo is playing tight on Waco and getting passed him quickly” Devoted to locking up Waco comes into play here when Waco keeps on scoring on him.

Later, on page 27, Han and Cy interacts with Boo, basically showing love to basketball by working hard and sweating. “Han and Cy seem to love basketball above all things. His pops had supported this happy fanaticism.” Boo’s response here deepens a reader’s sense of his Determined, and sparks a feeling of courage and hope for the players on his team.

Community walk to our neighborhood fire station Ladder 44 Bronx, NY

Geography Unit-Maps
Geography Unit-Maps

Today our class took a walk around our schools neighborhood. The students created a map and directions from school to our local firehouse Ladder 44. The firemen gave us a tour of their fire station and even let us in the ladder truck! This was an amazing experience for the students and I. Each student came up with one question each to ask the fireman. I learned a lot through the students engagement and questions. I learned fireman wear over 100 pounds of weight from just their uniform/protective gear, this is not including their own weight. I also learned that only a total of six firemen fit in each fire truck. I was surprised since the fire turcks are so big, you would have thought they had room for all the firemen. Instead most of the space on the truck is taking by rescuing tools.

This was an amazing exerience for me and I was so glad to share this with my students.

I now ask my fellow students to reflect on our trip and write about your experience.

1. What question did you ask the fireman?
2. What was the answer to your question?
3. What did you learn on our trip?
4. What did you like/dislike?
5. Why is it important to know about our neighborhood/community?

Hoy nuestra clase dio un paseo por el barrio de nuestra escuela . Los estudiantes crearon un mapa y las instrucciones de la escuela a nuestra estacion de bomberos ladder 44. Los bomberos nos dio un tour de su estación y nos permiten la entrada del camión! Esta fue una experiencia increíble para mi y los estudiantes. Cada estudiante pregunte una pregunta al bombero. He aprendido mucho a través de la participación y preguntas de los estudiantes . Aprendí bombero desgaste más de 100 libras de peso de sólo su equipo de uniforme / protector, esto no está incluyendo su propio peso . También me enteré de que sólo un total de seis bomberos encaja en cada camión de bomberos. Me sorprendió ya que los camiones incendios son tan grandes , yo pensaba que tenían espacio para todos los bomberos . En su lugar la mayor parte del espacio en el camión se está llevando por las herramientas de rescate .

Esta fue una experiencia de lo increíble para mí y yo estaba tan contenta de compartir esto con mis estudiantes .

Ahora les pido a mis compañeros de estudio para reflexionar sobre nuestro viaje y escribir acerca de su experiencia.

1. ¿Qué pregunta le pediste el bombero ?
2. ¿Cuál fue la respuesta a su pregunta?
3. ¿Qué aprendiste en nuestro viaje ?
4. ¿Qué te gusta / disgusta ?
5. ¿Por qué es importante saber acerca de nuestro barrio/ comunidad?

Dont Judge

A child is like a butterfly in the wind
Some can fly higher than others
But each one flies the beast it can
Why compare one to another
Each one is special each one is
