Practicing the Process

Zoe H. is a fifth grade leader at DES.

The fifth grade at Dadeville Elementary School began the school year by reviewing the writing process.  They used the writing process steps to compose short paragraphs about leadership. I will share some of the students’ work with you from time to time on this site. The following short paragraph was written my Zoe H.

This is how to be a leader at DES. Leaders think win-win. I will help others to be better. Leaders work first, then play. I will do my homework first then play. Leaders synergize. I will work together with friends to be great at gymnastics. My goal is to be a leader at DES this school year. – by Zoe H.

These short paragraphs are a great way to build the writing foundation for fifth grade. By the end of the year, the fifth grade will have written newspaper articles, poetry, short stories, and even short essays.

Welcome Class of 2021

ImageWelcome to fifth grade at Dadeville Elementary School. I look forward to working with you to make this a successful school year. 

We will read a variety of fiction and nonfiction. We will read informational text, short stories, and novels. Writing will play an important part in our class. We will respond to what we read through writing activities and group learning projects. 

Check this blog often. I will post important information on this site. Students will also have the opportunity to publish their writings on this blog.
