Bondurant-Farrar seventh grade students have been reading Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. They have finished the book and are still exploring the theme of building community by making connections with others, getting to know them, care about them, and being willing to help them. We have explored our own immigrant roots and found ancestors of Bondurant students have come from all over the world. We are looking forward to blogging with other students starting October 4.

My name is Kileigh and I am a seventh grader; My main hobby to participate in is dancing. One interesting thing about me is that I am younger than few sixth graders. I dance over in Altoona at Pat Barton Dance Studio; I am also on our Elite team.
In the book, Seedfolks, I learned about Marcela, Marcela is a Mexican, six-teen year old. She does not believe that anyone likes her, this is because she is pregnant. Maricela does not want have her baby, but Leona makes her change her mind about that for a split second.
We can build our community in Bondurant by doing city wide fundraisers. This would bring people together in one are and force them to talk. Here at the school we could build the community with Pep Rally's to get the students exited to go to school activities.
My name is Reagan and I am in seventh grade. I play softball for the diamond Jays 14u team. My favorite food is chicken. I have a dog named Chester, a cat named Nemo, and a turtle named Rico.
Did you like the book?
What was your favorite part?
Did you do any activities with the book?
My character Kim felt isolated because she could not relate to her family. So she started the garden to show her father that she was a farmer like him.
Bondurant middle school is like the garden because people hang out with there friends and sit just with there friends at lunch. The school try's to help this by making us sit with random people at lunch.
Hi my name is Miranda. I like roller skating, football, and bike riding.
Who is your favorite character from Seedfolks?
Why do you think they are solitary?
How did they connect to the garden?
My character, Maricela, she is a pregnant teen that feels disconnected from others because she feels like people don't care about her. She feels like people only care about her baby. Maricela doesn't want the baby and keeps wishing that she will miscarriage. Leona helps her realize that nature is amazing and makes her want the baby for once.
Our school also self segregates. Every day at lunch people sit with the same people. Our school tried to mix it up by randomly giving people seats so they would socialize with new people.
My name is Mandy. I love to compete in rodeos;my favorite event is barrel racing, and I like to hunt for deer and pheasants.
Whats your favorite animal?
Who's your favorite singer/artist?
Who is your favorite character from the seedfolks?
My character was Kim, I thought she was isolated because she didnt know anything about her father and the rest of her family did. Her father died before she was born, Kim is trying to get connected with her dad by gardening and growing beans because he was a farmer. Kim wants her dad to know that she is his daughter.
BFMS is like the seedfolks because some new people that come arnt sure who to sit with at lunch or who to hang out with. They don't know anybody and havn't talked to them and may judge someone. Some of them self segregate themselves by race or money.

Gonzalo is isolated because he sits in side all day watching TV. he has to watch his uncle.
Bondurant is like Seed-folks because the football players hang out with football players.

HI, i am Natalie. I like art,cats, and books. What is your favorite chapter in Seedfolks? What is your school like? What is your favorite thing[s] to do? My character is Nora. She was isolated because she was taking care of Mr.Myles who didn't talk. She feels like family with the others because they care about her and Mr.Myles.

2) Our school is very generous because we give to charities often. Our school is also very kind to one another.
3) We like to play sports and just be creative!!!
In 6H our favorite character is probably Kim because she was the reason the main reason the garden started. Our school is normal except we have to wear uniforms. That includes khakis and polo shirts ( navy blue or white). In 6H lots of people are involved in sports. Volleyball, basketball, track, football, and much more activities outside of school too!
Hi, my name is Brenna. Here are some things about me, I play volleyball, basketball, and run in track. I play the trumpet in band and honor bands. I love horses. I have two and i ride them at many horse shows.
Do you like Seedfolks?
Why do you like it?
Who is your favorite character?
My character, Gonzalo, feels isolated from his community because he stays at home all the time. He gets connected when his Great Uncle runs away to the community garden. Gonzalo runs after his uncle and gets to him at the garden and sees him gesturing to some guy.
The community at Bondurant has a few people and are always growing. We all have friends and we know lots of people. If someone is new I try to make friends with them so they don't feel alone.
HI! Our class likes Seedfolks on a scale 1 being the worst and 10 being the best, we are probably about a 5. Pretty neutral. We like it because there are new characters every chapter. Our favorite character is Florence because in her chapter, the book revealed the name Seedfolks.
I am Rachael I love to play 1st base in softball. My favorite animal is an Asian Golden Cat, also I love to help my parents take care of our animals.
My character is Leona. She has 2 teens in High school. Leona is middle aged and determined. she feels isolated because no one will listen to her or pay attention to her. she helps the community by a wearing the health department that they should clean the lot, so they do. that is how the people really got lured into it.
Our school is like Seed folks because at lunch everyone sits with people they know and can relate to the best. I think that some students feel isolated because no one wants to get to know them.
Hi, my name is Karley. I'm in 7th grade and my favorite subject is Math. I also enjoy singing! I'm one of the oldest in my grade. My birthday was Sept. 13th and that was my golden birthday.
How do you like the book? Out of the first 13 characters, who is you favorite? What theme do you think the book is? Well, my favorite character is Maricella. She was isolated because she was a 16 year old pregnant lady. At the beginning of the chapter Maricella wanted her baby to die because she wanted to go on dates and go to parties with her friends. Her and 2 other pregnant teens planted radishes to experience the miracle of life.
Here at Bondurant Farrar we self segregate but we all go and sit with our friends at lunch and don't like to leave our friends. Yes we enjoy spending time with our friends and meeting new people. We have some students that usually feel left out and feel they aren't cared about, when they do we can include them in our group.
My name is Richlen. I'm 12 years old. I have two pets a dog and a snake and I love rock climbing.
Did you like the book Seedfolks? Who was your favorite character in the book? What was your favorite part?
My character that i choose was Amir.I think Amir felt isolated because people would try to avoid and ignore him.I think the garden helped him because it gave him and others something to talk about (plants/gardening). I think Amir helped out with the community because he was friendly to the people around him even though some weren't very friendly to him.
Bondurant Farrar gives people to talk and get to know each other. Some students might feel isolated because people try to ignore and avoid them.Our school tries to help them by getting everyone to talk to each other and get to know each other better.
Our favorite character is Sam!
We love the book Seed folks.
We like the whole chapter about Sam.
My name is Josie In my free time I like to play softball,volleyball,and basketball. My favorite t.v. show is Pretty Little Liars.Some of my favorite foods are potatoes salad,mac n cheese and scratch cupcakes.
What did you think of the book?Who was your favorite character?What`s your favorite sport?
Nora,felt isolated in the beginning of the story because, she did`t know anybody in the garden and Mr. Myles couldn't plant because of his wheel chair.She solved her problem by helping Mr. Myles find a solution while still being in his wheel chair.At the end she wanted to shout,"The Gibb Street Garden is right here"At all the people passing by it.
I think that many new students feel isolated because they don't know anybody ,or their names and have any connections with other students. Bondurant tries to help by putting different students at different tables during lunch this gets you to meet other students for a day.I try to help by never judging sombody on how they look.And try to get to know them first.
We think the book is good. Our favorite character is Leona.We have lots of favorite sports, we like dance, swimming, volleyball, and football.
my name is Konnor..I love sports. I also like riding dirt bikes in seventh grade we are reading we are reading a book called the Seedfoks.
Are you a girl or a boy?
Do you like sports?
What's your favorite football team?
My character for Seed folks is Sam. He is around the age 65=-70. He is upset because he can't get the white people to talk to the Black people. He feels better at the celebration when he helping each other and giving away food.
The school hleps us a lot. If we feel isolated then they tell us to go to to an adult. BF-MS is like Seed folks because if you're at school and you are having trouble you just need to talk with someone. I try to help people who feel left out by asking them to be my partner.
My name is Elly and I am 12 years old. I love animals and i have a lot of them. I am also in lots of sports and activities. Do you think that the seedfolks is a good book? Did you like the activity of reading it? Who wer4e your favorite characters? Sam at the time felt isolated, because he didn't know anybody at the time and was Jewish and from a different country than everybody else. The Bondurant - Farrar school is like the garden because we help the community and it grows. some students might feel isolated maybe they are new or are bullied, and might even have a different religion or different race. The school tries to help this by trying to stop self segregation and bullying. We even have special classes for it.

Wendell is my character that I picked. Wendell is isolated since his son was killed by a gunshot and his wife died in a car crash accident so now when his phone rings he worries about another bad thing is the cause of the phone call.
Our school is like Seed folks because of the diversity. However I feel like people can't judge others just by looking at them. He gets control of his life when he sees Kim's plants and decides to help Kim water her plants so they don't die.
We have all different kinds of pets. We all have siblings, some more than others. We all enjoy different things. Some of us like sports, and some of us don't. We all like different characters.
We have been doing this study during my Information Literacy class. It's wonderful to have an opportunity to practice technology and citizenship skills in conjunction with a great book.

I am so impressed with the comments made by some of the kids. Great information about many of the characters!
My name is Kinsey. I love cats and I also have one. My favorite color is blue and purple. Who is your favorite character? What character do you not like as much? Do you think Maricela should be pregnant? Maricela was isolated because she was pregnant and she thought no one liked her. It helped her because she met someone that helps her with the pregnancy. She helped everyone realize that its not a disgrace to be pregnant. We're all in school and we all try are best to help each other. New students don't know anyone and they think people don't care about them.
Kitty Cat, Meow Meow !
My name is Caitlyn. I like to play volleyball and soccer.My favorite color is purple. Whats your favorite character? Who are you mostly like? Did you enjoy the book?

My character was Kim, she was isolated because she had no connection with her dead father. I think the garden helped her because it gave her a connection to her father and other people in the neighborhood. She helped the garden because she was the one who started it.
We're like the community in Seedfolks because we all go to school and are close to the same age. Some people might be isolated because they have no friends.

I think that Gonzalo was isolated because he didn't know anything about planting things and his uncle did. he felt like he was apart of the community when he planted his own garden and know what to do.

Boundurant Farrar is like a community.There are people who segregate and people talk to each other.Some people are isolated because some people are shy and or don't have friends.

I like to take pictures and edit them. Who is your favorite chapter so far?Do you like this book?Why do you like this book if u do?The chapter i did was Amir.I believe that Amir was isolated from the community because,everyone is scared of him.

My name is Emily.I play soccer, basketball, and softball. I'm 13, and my favorite color is neon pink. What was your favorite part of the book? Who is your favorite character?

My name is Raegan. I am a basketball cheerleader for our 7th-8th grade teams! I love spending time with my family. I am one of 4 kids, in my family
What is your favorite part of Seedfolks?
Who was your favorite character?
What were your thoughts about the garden?
My character was Nora. In her chapter Nora is trying to get Mr. Myles reconnected to the community.Becoming part of the garden was good for both Nora and Mr. Myles. This made people start to care about him and help him when he needed it.
At Bondurant, if we need help we can go up to anyone in the hall and talk to them about it. We are pretty much comfortable with each other. Some one might be shy, and they might not talk much. That can disconnect them for everything.We have tried different activities like Mix-It Up day to help kids make new friends. I try to help build the community by being a good role-model to younger students.
Our favorite part of the book is the beginning when Kim first started the garden. Our favorite character is either Kim or Leona. We thought that the garden should be a little bit more together instead of having certain spots for each race.
Hi, my name is Emily. I love being outdoors. I ride horses and love playing volley-ball.
who was your favorite character in Seedfolks. What was your favorite part in the book. What story do you think you can relate to the most.
I think that Sae Young feels isolated because she is scared to go meat people and talk to people.
I feel like in the end when she sees people in the garden she wants to be around people again.
In Bondurant we are like a community because we try to be nice to each other and talk to each other
A good character in Seedfolks is Kim. And one of the students think a good part in the story is when everyone is in the shoe shop greeting each other and learning their names. And many students relate to different characters in the story
My name is Nicolas. I am a starting wide receiver on our school football team. I also play basketball and baseball. I also love the Iowa Hawkeyes!
I have a few questions. What did you think of the book? Who is your favorite character? And why are they your favorite?
I chose to do Curtis for my character. He was isolated at the beginning because of every one calls him ceps and things he doesn't like. The garden helped him get lateesha back. And he helped the community by plating tomatoes.
BFMS is like the community of Seedfolks in some ways like were are connected because we have a lot of different cultures.I help people get connected by introducing people of different races to my friends.
Hi, My name is Elise. During my free time you will find me reading or writing. I really like wolves.
Which chapter is your favorite?
Who is your least favorite character?
If you participated in the garden what would you plant?
My character, Amir, was isolated at the start of the story because although there are lots of people in Cleveland everyone stays to themselves. They also make lots of stereotypes about immigrants so no one would want to get to know him. Once he started planting things in the garden however, many people talked to him and really got to know him. The garden gave him and others a reason to talk and get to know each other. He helped the community by chasing down a criminal and replanting someone's crop when it was ruined by the trash.
7th grade in Bondurant can be like the community in Seedfolks because we self segregate ourselves at lunch based on our gender and interests. We also stay to ourselves in the hallway. The school has tried to stop this like giving a random seating arrangement at lunch. I personally have tried to help others who don't know where to go, or can't open their locker.
Hi, my name is Emily, I'm 13 years old, I love to dance, and my favorite color is purple.
Who is your favorite character in the book?
What is your favorite part in the book?
What did you think about the end of the book?
My character, Kim, feels isolated because she doesn't have that male figure in her life.Her dad died eight months before she was born.
Bondurant schools are like the community garden in Seedfolks because we at first when we get here in kindergarten or came sometime else, we have had assembly's and in our homeroom last year we learned not to bully and to except people. I help by including others and being nice to the new kids to our school.
Hi, my name is Paige. i am a dancer and a cheerleader. my favorite color is neon pink. What is your name? What is your favorite chapter in the book? What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? Kim felt isolated when she was in her apartment with her mom and sisters when they were honoring her father on the anniversary of his death. Kim couldn't relate to the sad feelings that her sisters and mom had because her dad died before she was born. Kim felt as if her dads had no memories of her. Kim planted Lima beans in a vacant lot helped her feel close to her father since he was a farmer. She felt as if he was watching over her and the beans. Kim helped the community by planting a small garden in a vacant lot that had been filled with trash and rats. Here at Bondurant we help others that need help and care for each other. When there are new kids at our school they don't know any one and they feel left out sometimes, so we hang out with them and make them feel welcome and that they belong here. we respect others and include them in our groups and activities.

My character is Amir. He is isolated because he thinks no one wants to connect, unlike back in India, his home country. He decides to grow eggplant, and since it is such a different color, it provides conversation, so he gets connected and helps others.
Some kids here get left out of pre-made groups, so the school organizes opportunities to meet new people. I try to talk to these "left out" kids and give them a friend.
We think that that is so cool. Does someone ask the principle to something or is it just a kid club. We think that if it is just a kid club that takes real courage.

One day she was robbed and attacked. She was then afraid of everybody. When she was at the garden she liked being with the people.

At BFMS we self-segregate. We segregate by popularity, athletes, smarts, and niceness.The student counsil has tried to stop it by stickers but was unseccessful.
I am Ellie.I love giraffes a lot.I collect stuffed animals.I like two draw. What is your favorite animal? Do you like sports? Do you like bunnies? Boundurant schools is like the garden in Seedfolks in that we separate by popularity. Some people here are lonely. I don't know why they don't have friends. Student council has been try to fix that for years. My character is Sae Young. She is lonely too but she has a good reason to be. She doesn't talk very well so she does not like to talk to people. Most of her shyness comes from when she was robed and beaten. She felt the people in the garden were friendly and trustworthy

St. Pius X School sixth graders have enjoyed listening to the audio book, “Seedfolks” by Paul Fleischman. We have been filling out a graphic organizer after each chapter. We have discussed topics like immigration, segregation and community. We have pinned character origins on our Google Maps. We are excited about learning to blog with students outside of our school!
It is great to have you on board Sheryl!
The students really enjoyed discussing the community building theme and asking questions of 6th graders at a different school.
We look forward to your next installment. The students and I realize that there are probably more posts than the number of students you have, so we understand if not every post or question will be able to get answered. Thank you for trying this with us. This really motivated the students to make connections and think more deeply about theme and how the story builds it over several autobiographical like chapters.
Hello, my name is Olivia M.! I play goalie in hockey. This is my second year playing and I am really enjoying it. One more thing you might want to know about me is that I have an amazing, child like, foolish, but yet fun golden doodle.
Did you like the book?
Who is your favorite character?
What is your favorite part of the story?
My favorite character is Ana because she was so dedicated to get rid of the dump. She spent 61/2 hours on the phone with the city. I thought it was very clever of her to bring part of the trash and opened it up, and as soon as she did they let her in because it smelled so bad.
St. Pius is like Seedfolks because it is like everyone wants a little bit of that popularity like how everyone wants a little bit of the garden. Also like how there are many different groups of people like how the garden was separated into different parts according to your backround. I think we should just try to be friends with everyone so that there doesn't have to be seperation.
We think the character that spent 6 and 1/2 hours on the phone and got the city to clean up the lot was Leona.The class liked Kim mostly because she started the garden. We also liked Sae Young because she overcame being beaten and her fears and Gonzalo because Tio Juan was funny.
Seedfolks was cool because everyone had a different culture. In the end, the community came together.
My name is Ethan and I am a sixth grader. My favorite sport to participate in is baseball. One interesting thing about me is that I am the smallest kid on the football team but I am the quarterback. I play baseball for the Mustangs for USSSA baseball.
Who is your favorite character? Do you wish you could be a character from the book? Why do you like that character?
In the book Seedfolks I learned about Sam. Sam is different from other people because he smiles at black people. The weird thing is that he is white.
At our school we have mission awareness dress down day at the end of the month. One grade starts something for the needy like toys for tots, or shoes that fit. Then everyone starts to collect money.
We also have days where we fund raise for good causes. Every year we have a canned food drive or bring in supplies for the homeless shelter. We also work to raise money for Breast Cancer by selling pink items during lunch.
My name is Blake T. I like to eat a lot of food. I’m a boy who likes fun activities, and wood. I also have no brothers or sisters.
Whats your favorite food? Whats your favorite color? Do you have a cousin Nick?
I like the hobo, do you? If not do you like sam, I do he fun and respective.
kids are running around a lot, there is also a lot of grown ups.
Do you mean Royce, the homeless 15 year old? We liked how Curtis helped him by feeding him, introducing him around the garden, and getting him a pitch fork to help protect the garden and gardeners. We like a lot of different foods. Cinnamon rolls and crispitos are two examples.
Hi, I’m Joshua B. I am a great musician. My hobbies in music are piano and video game music. I can be really lazy, but overall I’m a nice person.
Why do you think they put barbed wire? Would You? Who is your favorite character?
Wendell is my favorite character and I think this character was isolated because all he really did was water a plant.
We kind of are separated into girls, boys, in-between, and weird. Our school doesn’t help much because they don’t seem to notice.
People start to value their things and want to protect them from others they fear will steal them, like the tomatoes. We also tend to sit at lunch tables with mostly girls or mostly all boys. We were not certain what you meant by weird. Last year, a survey showed many students get picked on when riding the bus.
Audrey H.- I love to play volleyball and am very athletic. My favorite food is seafood. And the Packers are my favorite football team.
(1)-Who is your favorite character? (2)-Why is he/she your favorite character? (3)-If you had to plant something in that community garden, what would you plant?
Kim- In the beginning of the story, Kim was very secretive about her private garden. But later in the story, she wasn’t as shy around everyone.
Like the community in Seedfolks, at my school, there are some groups that hang out with each other and keep to themselves. But then other people try to get to know them better so the person that keeps to his\herself doesn’t feel so isolated.
Most of the class selected Maricela, but we also liked Curtis, Gonzalo, Sam, and Wendell. At the beginning she didn't want to have the baby, but by the end she was open to the possibility.
Most of us would plant corn, but we also would like tomatoes, potatoes, hot peppers, pumpkins, and green beans.
My name is Lilly S. I am a dancer at Johnston Dance Academy, I am on the competition team. I have a standard poodle named Indi. I have and older brother in high school and a younger brother in third grade.
Do you like the book?
Who is your favorite character?
Can you relate to anyone in the book
My favorite character is Leona. She was isolated at the start of the story because she was African american. She helped the garden by making the town clean up the vacant lot.
Here at St.Pius we have a day every month where we dress out of our uniform and bring money to help a cause. It is a chance for everyone to help all together for a good cause.
We do not wear uniforms at our school, but we have a dress code. We cannot wear skinny shoulder straps, very short shorts, hoods and hats, or clothing with drug or alcohol ads. We wondered what uniforms look like and if students can still express themselves with accessories or shoes.
My name is Grace S. I play soccer, I play piano, and I play the flute. One interesting thing about me is that I am a year younger than almost everyone else in my grade. I have one brother in 2nd grade.
Who is your favorite character? Why does Gonzalo have to babysit his uncle? Why does Leona want to remove trash from the vacant lot?
My favorite character is Kim. Her father died before she was born. Kim felt isolated because she could not relate to her family. So she started the garden to show her father that she is her daughter, because her father was a farmer.
Here at St. Pius we have Mission Awareness Dress Down Days, one every month. We collect money for special causes. We all get together and pitch in like the garden in Seedfolks.
Gonzalo considers it babysitting because his uncle cannot speak English or Spanish, just a Guatemalan language no one but Gonzalo's mother knows. He is a great farmer, but he cannot even talk with others in Cleveland. Leona wants to clean up the lot so more people will participate in the garden. We like to do fund raisers to help the homeless shelter, fighting Breast Cancer, and the food pantry.
Hi, my name is Kaylyn C. I like to play football and soccer. My favorite subjects are P.E, Science, Social Studies, and religion. I have a friendly guinea pig named Coffee.
Have you ever read that story before? Do you like to listen or read? What is your favorite book?
My favorite charecter is Wendell because he is caring and kind. He wants to help people. He got to meet different people.
We all like to help one another in different ways. Some of us may have more friends than other people. The school helps us because the school has guidance. I like to help my community by helping everyone in our school, if I know them or if I don’t.
Our favorite books are the Hobbit, Holes, Harry Potter series, Killer Pizza, True Legends, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson, Weasel, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
Some kids at our school have more friends than others. We try to be there for kids who don't seem to have any friends here, like new kids.
Hi I’m Erin G. One thing that’s interesting about me is that I’m about 5% British and my friends say that I have a cool British accent. Another thing is that I love to do musicals and plays. I also do swim team, dance, and volleyball.
(1) If you could be one character from Seedfolks, who would it be?
(2) Why would you want to be the character that you
chose in question one?
(3) If you could rewrite the story Seedfolks, where would you have each character be from? For example, I would’ve had Kim be from London, England and Ana from Paris, France.
My favorite character is probably Kim. I think Kim is isolated in the beginning of the story is because she is really one of the only people that every go into the vacant lot. The community helped her by not destroying her plants. Well, except for Ana, but she did end up trying to save the plants after destroying them. So in a way she didn’t completely destroy Kim’s garden. Kim helped the community by helping clean up the vacant lot and turn it into a beautiful, useful garden.
The 6th grade is like the community in Seedfolks because they can all come together to do and good project. For example, how St. Pius does Shoes That Fit. A student can feel isolated if all of their friends were invited to a big birthday party, but they weren’t. The school tried to help by having a guidance counselor to talk to if you have a problem. They help build a community by bringing $1.00 or more on the Mission Awareness Dress Down Days.
The favorite was Curtis, but the class members also liked Sam, Gonzalo, and Maricela. Curtis was outstanding, but he changed his whole life for one person. Curtis could be from Japan or Jamaica.
My name is Will G. I Like to play basketball. I am a Sixth grader in St.pius X School.
What does BFM stand for?
Who is your favorite character?
What is your favorite part of the book?
My favorite character is Ana. I think she was isolated because she was afraid of mean bad people. I also think that the garden made her happy. She helped the garden by clearing the trash.
The sixth grade at St. Pius X school is like SeedFolks because we are together in some ways and we are different. We might feel isolated sometimes because we don’t have that many friends, and we maybe aren’t that smart
BFM is short for Bondurant-Farrar Middle School, the name of our school. We liked the harvest festival at the end when the community members were all sharing food and caring about each other. We also liked when Amir, Royce, and others chased down the purse snatcher. When Sae Young got the confidence to join the garden, we were relieved for her.
My name is Cole J. I am in 6th grade. I really like sports. I play football, baseball, basketball, and soccer. My favorite subject is Math.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how did you like seedfolks?
Who is your favorite character, why?
Why is Kim planting beans?
Kim is my favorite character, because at first she feels isolated, but she ends up turning her community around like a hero.
The sixth grade here is like Seedfolks because we all have different personalities. Some of us like to join groups and help others, and some like to just be there for as short of a day as they can and just go straight home.
Our scale ranged from 9 for many people to a low of 1 for someone who really didn't care for the novel.
We also have students that are really involved in the school going out for lots of sports, clubs, or other activities and eating breakfast and talking with friends before school. We also have some students that have to ride a bus home right after school or who have things at home they have to do (like babysit younger siblings) or want to do (like play video games or watch TV). Being more involved makes students feel better about the school.
My name is Drew D. I am a sixth grader. I play baseball, football, and basketball. I like to play on my phone and on the xbox.
My three questions for the BMF students are who is your favorite character? Why are they your favorite? Did you like the book?
I help my school community by recycling my classroom and another classroom. We also have a garden in the front of the school that the whole school takes care of.
My favorite character is Sam because he is very generous, smart, clever, and nice, and yes, I did like the book!
Hi, my name is Madison S. I love to play soccer, volleyball, basketball, run track, swim, and play softball. I have played soccer since I was 3 or 4. I love to be creative. I like to play the trumpet for band and Jazz Band. Being outside and riding horses are two things that I wish I could do all day long! I like to play Minecraft, A LOT!!!! One of the few things that I couldn’t live without, is reading. I LOVE reading! :)
In Seedfolks, who is you favorite character? Mine is Kim. Because she was inspired by her dad, to plant beans in the empty lot.
What is your favorite part of the book? Mine is when Gonzalo has to find his Uncle, and when he finds him, he is at the garden.
Did you like Seedfolks? I did. It wasn’t my favorite book ever, but it wasn’t like, my least favorite book. It was just right there in the middle.
St. Pius is like the garden because everyone there meets new people, here, the new kids get to meet new people. People at the garden were friendly, just like here.
The class's favorite character was Curtis, but we also liked Maricela, Wendell, Sam, and Leona. Because he never gave up on Lateesha, we believed he was very committed. Our scale for liking the book was between 2 and 7. One student preferred adventure books with more action. Some students didn't like the different points of view in each chapter.

We recycle, too. Students pick up the blue bins and take them to a giant dumpster behind the school. It is full several times per week.
We have a garden and a garden club. The club plants in the spring, weeds and waters all summer, and sells the produce in the fall to raise money to buy more seeds. They also bring vegetables to the middle school for students to eat for lunches. We like the fresh vegetables better than frozen ones.
The class's answers to your blog are below Madison S.'s blog. We had some technical difficulty and entered part of it twice.
Hi, my name is Ellie. I play competitive basketball and swim. I also like to use technology. I’m in 6th grade.
What would you plant if you had a garden?
How could your life be related to this book?
What would be something very good about Kim’s life, and something that could be better?
I like Sae Young because she’s nice and she was afraid of people, because her husband died, and somebody hurt her. But she had the courage to talk to poeple again, and that takes a ton of strength. St. Pius X School is respectful and nice to the Earth. We are good citizens, and we care about the enviroment. Pius has trustworthy people. We pick up trash and we have excellent volunteers!
We would plant an apple tree, corn, soy beans, watermelon, strawberries, and carrots.
We felt that Kim had a lot courage because she was willing to take a risk to go out in the lot in that neighborhood and plant the beans. We wish her father hadn't died before he knew her because in her culture that seems important.
We also have a vegetable garden with plants like tomatoes, sun flowers, pumpkins, gourds, corn, cantaloupe, and lettuce.
Hi my name is Benji M. I am 11 years old and I have one sister in high school and is a senior. I like to play chess and much more.
1.Who is your favorite character?
2.Why do you like the book?
3. Do you like the book?
Kim was isolated in the beginning because she did not have any friends to talk too. Kim helped by starting the whole garden and got other people to plant there to. It made the community less trashier and more attractive which got more people to join.
Mission awareness helps raise money to make the community better. It helps other people to support mission awareness.
At our school, we have several charity projects each year. We have cleaned up on Earth Day in April. We had a canned food drive for the food pantry. We also personal grooming items drive for the homeless shelter. Breast Cancer awareness has students purchasing pink items in the lunch room to raise money.
Hi, my name is Joseph B, I love to play football, to be active, basketball, track and soccer. I love to play outside, I am a 6th grade.
Do you like to farm? I do. Do you like to sleep on couches? Who is your favorite character?
My favorite character is Sam because he is a boy, and likes to plant.
We are like a community, we care for each other, we care for people's grades,and like to hang out with people.
We like sleeping on couches, too. Four of the students in this class farm. They like everything about farming.
We like Wendell, Amir, Sam, Curtis, Leona, Maricela, Virgil, Sae Young, Anna, and Kim. Each person probably picked the person they could relate to or who overcame a problem in a way that we like.
My name is grady.f. I play football and I love bacon.What does BFM stand for? what is your favorite food? who is your favorite character in seedfolks? mine is gonzalo he was isolated at the start because he is one of the people that own the garden. he helped the community garden by breaking up the soil and watering his garden.one friday of the month we all bring money and get to dress down to raise money for charity. my favorite color is neon green, I like pizza, and my favorite sport is football.
BFM means Bondurant-Farrar Middle School. Some us love bacon, and some hate it. Overall, orange and blue are our favorite colors, but we also like several others. Some people like Hot Pockets, potatoes, chicken wings, sushi, salad, tuna, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pizza, and several others. We do not have uniforms. What do they look like? Do you have to wear them to practices for sports? Can you wear any shoes you want?
You guys and girls did a toats fab job. Your posts were of the hook. We really liked the one about Curtis.
My name is Kate F.I’m a 6th grader St.Pius X school. My favorite color is pink. I play volleyball, basketball, and do Track. I have a twin brother named Grady and I have a Jack russell terrier named Oliver!
Do you wear uniforms?
What is your favorite sport?
What your favorite color?
My favorite Character was Leona. She was isolated because she saw people growing a garden and she wanted to make a garden herself. When her chapter first started she was loud and funny! I think she was a big part in this story because she went to city hall to get them to clean up the empty lot. If she hadn’t cleaned up the lot nobody would have a garden to grow their plants. The garden helped leona because she got to grow goldenrod (her mother’s favorite tea).
St. Pius X middle school is like the community in Seedfolks because all the kids at SPX learn from the same teachers 6-8th grade.This is like seed folks because how we all learn from the same teachers they all grow from the same garden.
My name is Carter H. I am 11 years old my favorite food is steak. I enjoy hockey and baseball. Here at St pius we have a dress code, you have to wear a navy, white, or forest green polo shirt. With either khacki or navy shorts or pants with a belt. I play for the KC Mavs elite hockey and I play for the Urbandale Blue Jays for baseball.
What do you guys think about the book? Do you guys like middle school? Who are your favorite characters?
My character is Sam. He is not that important but he’s funny and he tells some about the story. In the story sam talks about his childhood and where he lived. He also talks about how the neighborhood has changed.

My favorite character is Wendell. He is isolated because they told how his son was shot,and his wife was killed in a car crash.The garden helps him take his mind off of his job where he is a janitor. He is helping with the community because he helps with the garden by bringing it water each day.
St.Pius is like Seedfolks because we have people from different countries and different races. People at St. Pius can feel isolated because they might feel like they don’t have any friends. The school can try and help by going to the guidance counselor. I can help build in the community by hanging out with people who feel like they don’t have any friends at recess.
Ashley T., I want to become a vet. I have two dogs and want a cat. I have a family of seven.
Do you like the book so far? Are you interested in the book? Who is your favorite character and why?
I like Kim the best because she wants to turn the vacant lot into a garden to have her father that died see that she was his daughter.
St. Pius X School is like the book because we can share, like how they share the garden.
Hi, my name is Megan S. I like to play volleyball, basketball, soccer, and run track. I love to shop and text!
Who is your favorite character and why?
Did you like the book?
What was your favorite part?
My favorite charcter is Kim, and she was isolated at the start of the story because she was sad that her dad died. The garden/community helped her by making her feel better about her loss, and she helped the community by adding spirit to gardening.
Sometimes people feel isolated from everyone because something negative is going on in their lives. The St. Pius X Middle School is like the community in Seedfolks because everyone comes with their problems/feelings there, then they feel better! It’s like you talk to your friends about your problems, and then they help you because they understand and get you!
I like Kim because she has courage.
I like the voices the people have because it gives you a hint of where they are from.
I liked the book, I would read it again but my favorite books are mystery ones.
My name is Anna G. I like the colors blue, pink, purple, and green. My favorite sports are volleyball, basketball and track. I have five pets, two cats, two fish, and one turtle. My favorite character in Seedfolks is Kim because her dad died and she didn’t know him so she planted a little garden of beans and she helped the community by planting in the vacant lot to start a whole garden that other people could plant in/on. The garden reminded Kim of her father.Sometimes we need help like Kim did when her plants started to shrivel up and almost die if other people hadn’t of found it and helped her take good care of them.
Who is your favorite character?
What was your favorite part of the story?
Would you read Seedfolks again?
Our school is like the garden in Seedfolks because we help each other out but sometimes we can be separated from everyone and build up an invisible fence to block others away when we know that they need our help in certain times. We all get caught up in our own thing but we can fix them by helping others.
My name is Josh K. and I enjoy writing.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, how much did you enjoy

This is like me because I needed friends at the start of the year,like Kim people started to be okay with me then a lot of people were friends with me. The garden helped kim feel like she was close to her dad.
St.Pius is like Seedfolks because we all kind of have our own little group in one big community. We all want to help one another but stay in our own group. we all like the same thing in different ways like Seedfolks enjoy gardening.
