RAHWAY — As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” Students at Franklin Elementary School in Rahway took his advice, embarking on a writing journey that began on the National Day on Writing in October.
Students spent many weeks working on various grade level appropriate writing activities focusing on the school’s namesake – Benjamin Franklin. Teachers helped students take their work through the writing process of drafting, revising and publishing.
The back of the auditorium at Franklin School was transformed into a writing gallery where the finished products were proudly displayed from Jan. 14 through Jan. 21 in honor of Benjamin Franklin’s birthday, which was Jan. 17. Many guests visited the gallery including students, parents, district administrators, and community members. Students were encouraged to continue to grow as authors by comments that visitors left in the guest book.
