Congratulations to Maple Elementary School first grader Taliyah Dukes, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). Her teacher, Ms. Paula Falcone, submitted her story because of its “imagination, detail in writing and pictures.” Taliyah 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. Taliyah will be invited to read her story at an upcoming board of education meeting.
