Week of April 27th

Digital Learning Days - Factory Shoals Middle School

This week, during our Zoom meeting, we will have a visit from Dr. Hosey and Mrs. Robinson. I will finish reading our whole group novel, Dear Levi. We’ll find out if Austin makes it to his Pa’s claim and if his brother Levi joins him.


I must say that I’ve enjoyed reading all of the opinion essays and fractured fairy tales that were submitted on Office 365. Many of you are impressing me by implementing everything that you’ve learned during our writing lessons. You are using hooks to grab your reader, adding transitions, changing paragraphs, and writing meaningful opening and closing paragraphs. I have commented on all of the work that I have received by either emailing your parents, or by leaving comments on your work on Office 365. I’m so proud of you- KEEP IT UP!! 🙌


In addition to the reading assignments posted on the 4th grade blog, please continue to read for 20-30 minutes each day. 📚


In addition to the math assignments posted on the 4th grade blog, don’t forget to practice your skills on Dreambox.com. You should be completing 5 lessons per week.

I love and miss you guys❣❣

Mrs. Rutherford

Cobb Schools 4-Day Digital Learning Schedule

As we enter the fourth week of digital learning across Cobb County, we have been actively listening to the experiences of our students, parents, and teachers. In an environment that has changed much in our day-to-day lives, we have heard many examples of an entire community that is supporting learning in exciting, creative ways. We are also committed to listening and learning from those experiences so student learning can best continue for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.

Beginning Monday, April 13, 2020, for all Cobb County students, and for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year, digital learning will occur on a Monday through Thursday schedule.

Each Friday will be an opportunity for students to independently review their progress from the previous week and to catch-up on assignments as needed. No new work or assignments will be presented to students on Fridays.
