Slacker Lifestyle… So Who Won?

Hello Readers,

So you probably know that the 6th Grade Chapter of SMS Guys Read have been reading and talking about Slacker by Gordon Korman.  To go along with Cameron Boxer’s gamer lifestyle we created a video game tournament and played some classic arcade games.

The games lasted over the course of many Friday lunch meetings, and we are now ready to reveal the Slacker Lifestyle Gamer Champion…

I really have no idea how I won this stupid challenge, I don’t even really like video games.

Now, the story that Mr. Korman wrote is not just about video games, but also about how Cameron Boxer tries to hide his gaming behind good deeds.

We decided we needed to hide our gaming behind a little service project, so for the next two weeks the 6th Grade Chapter of SMS Guys Read will be cleaning the lunch room!

Now go grab a copy of Slacker and get your read on.  Then you can get your gamer lifestyle back on.  🙂

Slacker Lifestyle

Hello Readers,

Things are getting very exciting over at the 6th Grade Chapter of SMS Guys Read.

We have been talking about Gordon Korman’s latest middle grade masterpiece… Slacker.  If you love Gordon Korman already, and really what middle grade reader doesn’t, you probably already have this book read or in your sights.  For everyone else, please go grab a copy and enjoy this silly book about a baked ziti emergency, video gamer lifestyle, service projects, the death of main street America, loss of animal habitat, and student jealousy.  If that sounds a little heavy, don’t worry mostly its about gaming.

So we created a reading challenge to honor the gaming lifestyle that Slacker’s main character, Cameron so loves.

Take a look….

We have only completed four matches of the first round, so check back as we complete those final eight matches.

I think Cameron would be very proud of our chair’s butt mark after round one!
