Intervention Specialist, Ms. Debbi Berardi, submitted Lupita’s writing because it demonstrates the skills she has been learning: “sequencing and writing a paragraph.” Lupita was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. The PCLS Curriculum Department/Teaching and Learning Team developed the W-o-W! program to recognize the hard work and creativity of PCLS students. In an effort to help build a community of writers, the team encourages schools to display the W-o-W’s work and asks teachers to use the W-o-W’s work as part of their writing instruction. Lupita will be invited to read her writing at an upcoming board of education meeting.
