GEMS First-Graders Organize “Flood of Books” To Benefit Students in Staten Island

Target 4: Engaged Community Partners – FWSU staff and students will collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize ideas and learning with local, regional, state, and global partners to make a difference in their community, state, and world.

Action Step – Plan and manage instruction around problems relevant to students and their community and develop solutions for authentic audiences.

GEMS first graders in Mrs. Nye’s class found a creative way to help students in Staten Island Schools recently devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The class collected and autographed books to send to students impacted by the storm.
