Hi Everyone,

We are 2/3rds of the way through this semester, and it has been GREAT!  

 We have been woring on vocabulary, word problems, reading commprehension, and writing.  

IF you have not yet had a chance, please check in Edmodo and read your child's story they wrote in class.  We spent 3 weeks developing characters, setting, conflict, plot, and resolution.  The end results were awesome!  

 

*Please remember to check Edmodo regularly for Study Guides, Homework, and posted classwork, so you can help your child keep up with their assignments, and see the wonderful work they are doing in school!

 

 

As we continue the school year, it is my on-going goal to work closely with you and your child to ensure they receive the best opportunites to learn, flourish, and grow as a student and as a citizen of our school. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through email at honey.westfall@cobbk12.org.
