Collaboration Station

Collaboration Station

The stories included missing Halloween treats, ghosts, runaway pumpkins and lots of creative collaboration. Mrs. Surmay’s fourth grade class and Mrs. Gilbertson’s first grade are buddy classes. In October they collaborated on stories with a Halloween theme. The younger students generated the story ideas and dictated the text to their older partner. The students then illustrated the stories together. All BPS classes are matched with a buddy group to promote collaboration and build school community connections.
