GATE Loves Their First Grade Book Buddies!
This semester 4th Grade GATE students are completing a concept based unit on literacy called Book Buddies. Each Thursday students from 1st grade partner up with a GATE student. The students take turns reading books from differnt genres and authors. 4th grade students love getting to know their 1st grade book buddy and sharing their love of reading with them! The 4th grade students will complete their service project by writing and illustrating a book with their book buddy as the main character. After they edit and publish their books the 4th grade students will gift their 1st grade book buddy with a copy of their book.
