Biography Blast at W.W.P.S.
D.E.L.T.A. (Differentiated Enriched Learning Through Acceleration) students at Washington-Wilkes Primary School enjoyed a recent unit of study on Benjamin Franklin. To extend the learning, Gifted and Talented teacher Jennifer Holton incorporated other biographical study as well. Students wrote biographies about each other and used research skills to learn about famous people of interest. The culminating activity on Feb. 27th included a special parent performance, at which time students presented a Reader’s Theater enactment about Ben Franklin. They also enriched the learning and performance by dressing like the person they researched and playing a “Who Am I” game with the attending parents. Pictured above are D.E.L.T.A. students, many holding the puppets of the celebrities, (Front row, left to right) Makinna Gibson, Kynijal Williams, Emma King, Taylor Mahoney, Gabriella Arroyo (Back row, left to right) Merrill Dresch, Emily Hardy, Trix Sunga, Dylan Boyd , Desmond Cofer, Harper Smith, Laney Moyer, and Nathaly Aburto.
How Are We Doing at W.W.P.S?
The Georgia Department of Education wants to know how W.W.P.S. and all Georgia schools are doing. If you can spare five minutes, please let the Ga. DOE know how well Washington-Wilkes Primary School is doing by completing a very brief 20-question survey. The survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education. The results will then be used to “grade” W.W.P.S. and to calculate our School Climate Star Rating. The online survey is quick and easy. It will take 5 minutes or less.
