Fifth-grade class at MES publishes book
Middlesex Elementary School students in Mrs. Hixenbaugh’s 5th grade writing class are now published authors! The students went through the writing process of planning, drafting, revision, and proofreading their stories before they typed their final stories on laptops. They then illustrated their stories before sending the work to a publisher.
The finished, hardbound book, titled “Our Favorite Faces, Places, and Fables,” included both fiction and nonfiction stories. The young authors proudly presented their book to their principals, Mrs. Duke and Mrs. Carter, and classmates with a “book-reading” celebration.
