This is important for Jessica because books comfort her and she likes happy endings and which in this case, this book has one. It so happens that Mr. Terupt likes books with happy ending as well.

2. Bathroom Pass

This is important because on the first day of school one of Mr. Terupts students, Peter, kept going to the bathroom to get out of class. Mr. Terupt eventually called Peter out and said "I'm going to have to call you Mr. Peebody or better yet Peter the Pee-er." This helped Peter and Mr. Terupt establish a relationship because Peter thought Mr. Terupt was a funny guy and Peter was too.

3. Dollar Words

A dollar word is a game that Mr. Terupts class played. The object of the game was to get a word which its letters equal 100. J would equal tun because J is the tenth letter in the alphabet.

E=5 X=24 C=3 E=5 L=12 L=12 E=5 N=14 T=20
Total amount equals 100.

One person that was extremely good at this game was Luke. (Another one of Mr. Terupt's students.
