"D" is for Dessert

Room 100 added a little sweetness to observe National Dessert Day, a day to celebrate all things yummy.

Fifth grade students are preparing for the district writing assessment, and today’s prompt was sweet. Since it is National Dessert Day, students were asked to write about a favorite dessert. What does it look like? How does it smell and taste? They were asked to describe a dessert so clearly the reader could see it, smell it, and almost taste it as well.
There were plenty of reasons to celebrate after the papers were collected. Students are becoming descriptive writers. We heard plenty of "oohs" and "aahs" as students shared their paragraphs.  

Students ended class with a cookie.
It's always a favorite!

Happy National Dessert Day!
