Congratulations to Maple Elementary School fourth-grader Sophia Turner, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). Her teacher, Mrs. Amanda Rossignol, submitted her story because “Sophia did a great job of creating an imaginative narrative about a new student at school. Not only is the story creative, but it teaches a great lesson about how to be kind to others and accept people for their differences.” Sophia was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox.
Her story "Anna the New Kid" can be viewed below.
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. Sophia will be invited to read her story at an upcoming board of education meeting.
