Dear Trailer 4A,
Time to make that important connection between your real world and our classroom. Yes, we are actually heading to our community Food & Clothing Bank to help sort donations.
Yes, CONNECTION, people. It means “a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else”. Let’s brainstorm a list of CONNECTIONS we could make between this trip and our recent classroom lessons on Giving Back: Our Community.
1. My Earrings – Um, well, yes, a connection of some sort, but not quite the connection we’re mining for today.
2. My Dealer- Next.
I see we could use some modeling here: An appropriate connection would be GIVING BACK=PERSONAL SATISFACTION or COMMUNITY SERVICE=RESPONSIBILITY
3. Community Service+ My Dealer= Probation!?
Ohhhh-kaaaayyyyy…. Gotcha. Not a convo that’s going to happen today…
Isn’t it spelled volun-TEAR? No.
