Resourcefulness
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Pepper asked the server for a box to put the rest of her meal in. "There is enough left for my lunch tomorrow," she observed.
 
2     T.C. admired his friend's new skateboard. A new board would be great, but he could make do with the one he had. All he needed to do was to tighten the trucks as well as tighten and oil the wheels. Then they could have a race!
 
3     Kessa carefully stacked the old newspapers and placed them in a recycling box. Then she put her rinsed-out plastic bottles in the recycling box for plastics.
 
4     Jamal stopped his little brother from throwing the burger wrapper on the ground. "It's not that far to the trash can," he said. Then he took the balled-up wrapper and tossed it into the can.
 
5     Breezy took her favorite jeans to her mother. "Can you fix these? The zipper broke," she said. Her mother smiled. Fixing broken zippers was easy. She appreciated Breezy for asking for a repair instead of asking for a new pair of jeans.
