Elbridge Gale Kids Share Their Love Of Reading

Students in Laura Corzo’s fourth-grade classes at Elbridge Gale Elementary School made bookmarks for pediatric patients at Palms West Hospital and the Kids Cancer Foundation. In the bookmark project, students had to complete a bookmark book review and an illustration that depicts their favorite book or author. Students had the option of making a second bookmark to donate to the pediatric patients. All of the students made a second bookmark and were very happy to be able to spread their love of reading with other children. “It is very nice to see students so eager to help others, especially those children who are very sick,” Corzo said. In addition to this project, students will also be donating books that they have read already. In the book, they will include a book evaluation where they have to analyze, evaluate and cite certain parts of the book. Shown above are students with their bookmarks.
