Bud, Not Buddy

Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis

AR: 5.0

Grade Level: 3rd-7th

Summary: Have you ever been through so many obstacles, while trying to reach a certain goal? Well, Bud has! He has been through foster homes, traveling through places unfamiliar to him, and has even had trouble with some vampires! His goal is to try to meet his father. This book shows the journey Bud travels through to get to his destination!

Idea: I would use this book to demonstrate how one is able to reach a set goal, no matter what. This is something I would want students to apply into everyday life. One activity I would have students do is to list their short and long term goals. I would meet with them, individually (once a week), to check on the progression of meeting those goals. I would want to see where they are, to make sure they are closer to reaching those goals!
