Grade 6 is Bringing Novels to Life by Acting scenes & Building 3D Art pieces
Grade 6A is reading a novel called ‘Bud, not Buddy’. It is rich in figurative language and very descriptive word choice.
To bring this to life, they decided to recreate the thrilling scene of Chapter 3 where Bud has been locked in a shed.
The author uses figurative language and interesting word choice to create a suspenseful tone and students have to
read and interpret the author’s word choices very carefully to make a 3D version of the shed. Each object’s shape,
color and placement is from their reading and interpretation. This activity really helped bring the text to life.
Grade 6B is also reading Bud, not Buddy. In this class they decided to act out Chapter 6. In this chapter, Bud misses
his chance to eat food from the charity kitchen because he is late. A kind family take pity on him and pretend he is
their son so he can join the queue to eat. It’s a fun and heartwarming chapter to act out. Students had a great time
learning lines, practicing and performing for their peers.
