NISD: District names elementary Writers of the Month for May 2019
Northwest ISD’s curriculum team has selected the district’s elementary Writers of the Month for May 2019, honoring three students for their academic capabilities.
This month’s honorees include Camryn Guyer from Justin Elementary School, Pearson Bowden from Lakeview Elementary Schooland Chidera Chibuoke from Sendera Ranch Elementary School. Each writer selected his or her favorite recent work to highlight for the award.
Camryn recently wrote about her puppy, Mia, and the fun they have together. She said she chose to write about Mia because she knew she could give good details to help readers create an image of the dog in their minds. Pearson also wrote about his dog, Pepper, and how she is well-behaved. He said he likes to free write to share his ideas. Chidera recently wrote a short story about a young gymnast who worked well with teammates and had good sportsmanship. She said she loves writing because she can imagine what her characters are doing.
The district’s literacy coaches work with a group of campus teachers and administrators to select students who show exemplary writing performance or tremendous growth as writers. After students are chosen, each is asked to select his or her favorite work of writing and explain why that work was chosen.
Students are recognized by district educators as well as through the Northwest ISD English Language Arts program with a certificate of achievement.
