Connecting Sixth Grade Writers with First Grade Readers

Reading Collaboration

As our school year keeps moving towards a close (Why do all my friends keep asking if my year is over? Not yet!), there are plenty of projects still to be juggled. One is a Picture Book Project that our sixth grader did in a pilot digital site. This week, my librarian colleague has been connecting sixth grade writers with first grade readers to share the books and stories.

I wish we did more of these cross-grade connections in our school. It’s a powerful way to bring students together, particularly as writers and artists and readers.

Peace (it’s in the connection),
Kevin
