“The Jacket” by Gary Soto – Secret Brain Buck Opportunity

Are you wondering just what is the shade of “day-old guacamole”, as mentioned in “The Jacket” by Gary Soto?  Well, your wish has been granted…

Ew!  Was that your reaction?  Earn a Brain Buck by writing one or two complete sentences about your own reaction to “day-old guacamole” in the “Language Arts” box of your agenda any time from now (Friday, October 20, 2017) through Friday, October 27, 2017, and show it to me to earn your Brain Buck.   Be sure to use descriptive/figurative language, such as sensory language.  How does it appeal to your senses?  Would you want to wear an oversized jacket this color?

*BONUS:  Write a complete paragraph based on the information requested above on a separate sheet of paper to earn both a Panther Paw Buck and two Brain Bucks!

No Name Box

If students did not put their name on their work, it was submitted to the No Name Box, located in the front of the classroom, under the table, with a giant, orange label “No Name Box”.  As our first quarter of school just ended yesterday, there were still so many pieces of work that went unclaimed!  Below, you can see an image of how much work students did, yet received no credit for due to missing names.  Students, please remember to put your name on your work to receive the credit you worked so hard to earn.
