Freckle

Posted on

Dear Parents,

Students now have access to Freckle, a site through Cobb County that provides support with reading passages on their reading level, and answering text-dependent questions. This will serve as excellent practice as we begin preparing for Milestones testing. Going forward, please begin to incorporate work with Freckle into our weekly homework plan.

You can access Freckle through this site: Clever in Cobb
Click on: “Log in with Directory”
Log-in with student first and last name and student number

Students take a pre-assessment the first time they log-in, and then Freckle will give them passages and questions based on their performance. I can track their progress and will make assignments for them as needed. I am excited about the growth we will see in the students from utilizing this resource. Please let Mrs. Williams know if you have any questions about Freckle.
