Writing Windows

All learners can write about their learning - even English learners! Watch this short video of students using the activity Writing Windows. You can download a graphic organizer, read lesson ideas, and even see specific support suggestions for making this activity successful with your ELs. Try it this week and channel some of that extra energy into focused discussions and writing!

Coffee Day

Our Wilson PTO has a standing Wilson Elementary day at GEORGE Coffee. The December day is this coming Tuesday, and they bumped up the start time to 6:45 to accommodate our staff.

Swing by for a cup of coffee on Tuesday, and support our Wilson PTO!
