K-GRAMS
From Page 1A
from the University and local
elementary schools through pro-
grams like Pen Pals and Book-
MARK, a mentoring and reading
program.
Members of more than 60
student groups also came to
the event to entertain the kids
and host activities for the fair.
Activities varied from an inter-
active Jeopardy-inspired game
with health and nutritional facts
to an "Instrument Petting Zoo,"
which was created by the Michi-
gan Marching Band to give kids
an opportunity to play different

musical instruments.
Engineering junior Paul Dar-
nell and LSA and Art & Design
sophomore Ian Matchett, mem-
bers of the student organization
College Socialists, set up an art
station with stencils for the kids
to paint with.
"They were really engaged,
and actually, we had to keep tell-
ing them to not to paint in the
lines," Darnell said.
Matchett said the fair was a
chance for other student orga-
nizations on campus to get
involved and interact with the
kids - something many groups
don't have the opportunity to do.
"It's like giving back to a com-
munity that we should be a part

of," Matchett said.
Ellen Gorbaty, a teacher from
Holmes Elementary School in
Ypsilanti, said the games and
crafts created a perfect interac-
tive environment for the kids.
"Our kids don't get to do this.
If they're not in school, they're
attached to a video game or an
Xbox or any electronic stuff,"
Gorbaty said.
For LSA senior Liz Bronson,
who collects letters from the res-
idence halls and delivers them to
elementary schools as one of the
K-Grams Hall Heads, one of the
most meaningful aspects of the
K-grams Pen Pals program and
the Kids Fair is the exposure to
college life the elementary stu-

dents get by writing and talking
to their pen pals and being on
campus.
"I think it's really great
because it gives the elementary
school kids a real taste of what
college is like and they get to
come to the campus and they get
so excited to actually see college
kids," Bronson said. "They saw
a football player outside, and it
was like a celebrity sighting."
Gorbaty's class was chosen
this year to be the K-day class out
of all the participating schools.
Her students had an opportunity
to spend a day on campus and
experience the University's cam-
pus life by sitting in on a chem-
istry class, eating a meal in the

residence halls and exploringthe
University of Michigan Museum
of Art. Gorbaty, who has been
involved with K-grams for eight
years, said all the programs and
the Kids Fair have been benefi-
cial experiences for her students.
"All of the activities that they
do are just building bridges and
building avenues for our kids,"
she said.
LSA freshman Claire Talbert
said she enjoyed spending time
with her pen pal, who she met
for the first time at Friday's
event.
"It was just nice to see her in
person and to actually get to talk
to her and not have to wait until
another letter came," she said.

Talbert described the letter
exchange with her pen pal as a
fun way to connect with an ele-
mentary school student.
"It's a really nice way to talk to
younger students and tell them
about things that they can do
at school and get them excited
about things that you like -like
finding someone who's as inter-
ested in reading books as you are
or learning about riding horses,"
she said.
Gorbaty said she was excit-
ed to see the first encounters
between the pen pals.
"I don't know who smiled
more - my pen pal kids or the
college students. They were
equally excited," she said.
