Rampage players Jared Gomes and Dov Grumet-Morris spent an afternoon with 2nd graders from Storm Elementary as they read to their Pre-K buddies. Both players spoke about the importance of education and reading before partnering with students in read alouds.
Storm Elementary's second graders are working on improving literacy as their Team Up Challenge project. The group wants to emphasize how important it is to read to each other - especially those who have younger siblings. The group will host literacy nights and give out literacy packs to families. At the end of the year they will also create a how-to book with tips and tricks of peer to peer reading.
In her first year as a Team Up Challenge Scholar, Brandi, a graduate student at Our Lady of the Lake University, is dedicated to her team - a group of 5th graders who want to provide more organic fruits and vegetables to their community.
The group has already planted a community garden on their campus with over 15 garden beds filled with winter crops.
"As a mentor, I am humbled by the experience to be involved with the Team Up Challenge Scholars," Brandi said. "I have the opportunity to be part of a living legacy of future leaders who will be more apt to take care of the environment, practice healthier dietary habits and exercise."
Scholars work with their students thoughout the year on their projects, providing guidance and encouragement while also serving as an example for continuing education beyond high school.
