Rock Eagle Payments are due!

Please be reminded that ALL Rock Eagle payments are due in FULL by this Friday, October 27!!  If you have not sent in final payment, please be sure to get that in ASAP, as we need to send final numbers over to Rock Eagle, as well as finalize our chaperone list for the trip that is coming up in THREE short weeks! 

Science Update, Oct. 23, 2017

I had SO MUCH FUN at the iFly experience with our Addison students!

Over the past couple of weeks, we have introduced our new standards where we will explore the states of matter, physical and chemical changes, and mixtures and solutions.  The students have investigated key content vocabulary, and have completed Study Centers in small groups to gain knowledge on matter, how matter changes, and how they can identify physical and chemical changes.

This week, I am very excited to be introducing our first PBL (Project-Based Learning) unit.  We have set up our PBL journals for the three week unit, and we are set to begin working with our PBL teams this week!!

For more information on PBL's, the task that the students will be completing, and final project information, please check out the "Science with Mrs. Westbrook" blog!

Teacher of the Year Parade!

5th Grade Parents,

Did you know that one of our very own 5th grade teachers is TEACHER OF THE YEAR?! Yes! Ms. Jagannathan is the current Teacher of the Year! Our cafeteria manager, Kimberly Edgett is our Classified Employee of the Year!

One way to celebrate this great achievement is by participating in the East Cobber Parade on Saturday, September 16th rain or shine. We would LOVE for you and your children to join us for this super fun event! We have a dad from Addison who will be chauffeuring both ladies in an open Jeep Wrangler while kids, parents, and teachers walk behind. We have 17.25 lbs of candy for the kids to toss to parade participates and signs for kids to hold as we walk! 

The parade is on Sept. 16, and we need to arrive to Row A, Space 31-32 at 8:30 a.m. as walkers at the Mount Beth Elementary School parking lot (1210 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta 30068). Arrive on time as Johnson Ferry Road will be closed at 9:30. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m. We cannot park our cars there (only the Jeep they are riding in can be parked there). You will need to park at a nearby shopping center and walk to the Mount Bethel Elem. parking lot. The parade starts at Mount Bethel Elementary School and ends at Olde Towne Parkway. In case you are interested, the East Cobber Festival is immediately following the parade at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church's south parking lot (955 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta) from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

If you need additional information, please contact Kim Campbell (5th grade parent of Ella) via email kimncampbell30@gmail.com or text/call 770.361.1420.

Update for September 7

Progress Reports were sent home today with each 5th grade student.  Please be sure those get signed and are returned to your child's homeroom teacher tomorrow.  Also, please understand that this is simply to show you where your child is currently functioning across the curriculum, and there are still grades that will be entered into Synergy, as well as missing assignments for some students that will be turned in and graded. Be sure to check in Parent Vue to see your child's updated progress now through the end of the quarter.

Reading Update from Mrs. Barkley:

Novel study test has been MOVED to Tuesday, September 19th! ALP will be switched to Friday of that week so ALP students will still be able to review and take the test with everyone else. Study guides for the novel study test will be given out soon. They will be due on Monday, September 18th. Purple folders(completed this in class) and summary project(everything should be complete by Friday, 9/8, except the cover picture) are both due on Tuesday, September 19th. These are both great resources to use to study. ALL chapter recordings will stay on the blog until after the novel test, so students can listen to the whole book again if they would like.

Homework for August 31

Reading:  Finish Chapters 1-6 summary cards.
Math:  Multiplication worksheet (#'s 2,4,6,8,9,10,11,12,13).
Science:  Be sure you have finished your Steps to Saving Fred section of your planning sheet.  We will finish tomorrow in class, we will finish our Solution Flow-Charts, and we will have students/teams share how they saved Fred!
Social Studies: Today students went home with a rubric and a slip of requirements for a mini-research on the Leaders of the Civil War. Students will be allowed to make a PowerPoint, a Sway presentation or use index cards to display their research. Because there was so much to go over today some classes did not have an opportunity to begin. Therefore, Tuesday and Wednesday next week will be research days in class.
Students may bring their B.Y.O.D. device only if they have a consent form with a serial number for both days. They are more than welcome to the laptops, desktops, and I-pads we have in order to conduct their research. All links, extra information, and PowerPoint explanation of the lesson is on the Social Studies Blog. I am extending the due date to September 8th since we could not begin it today. In total, there are 10 mandatory leaders and 3 extra credit people from prior to the Civil War.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Donation needed:

I am in need of 3x5 blank (on both sides) note cards. If you have a chance to grab a pack, please send them in to Mrs. Barkley! Thank you so much!!

Upcoming Dates to Remember

Wednesday, August 30 will be a county-wide Early Release day, therefore we will begin dismissal at 12:15.  Please make note of the early release and make arrangements for your child.

Also, please be reminded that there will be no school on Monday, September 4, 2017 due to the Labor Day holiday.

Rock Eagle

Please be sure that you are sending in Rock Eagle payments!  The first payment was due this past Friday ($70.00)!  We do appreciate those who are able to pay in full ($200.00), but if you need to make payments in installments we certainly understand.  We will give your child a school envelope when they get here and they will place the payment in the black box.

We are very excited about the trip, and it will be here before we know it, so we need to begin planning out how many cabins/chaperones we will need in November!

Spelling Contracts

This week we will begin Weekly Spelling Contracts with our 5th graders, but they will actually only be getting contracts and spelling words every OTHER week.  The students have pasted the contracts into their "extra" composition notebook that has now become their Spelling Journal.  They are to complete 3 of the spelling activities to make a Tic-Tac-Toe, and will complete these activities in their new Spelling Journal.  Once they have completed an activity, they will color that box on their Spelling Contract.

In addition to the 3 spelling activities, the students will need to complete one of the study activities at the bottom of the spelling contract!

These activities will be due by Friday, and they will be given some morning time to complete some of the activities here at school.  Each homeroom teacher will be giving a spelling test on Friday morning.  The students will have 11 spelling words + 4 content-related words this week.

Please see the Spelling Page/link for students to use to practice the pre-loaded spelling list on Spelling City!!

Happy Spelling!

Howework Assignments for 08.28.2017


Multiply whole numbers- Finish classwork assignments given today

Social Studies:

World's Apart Summary Page

STEM Supplies Needed!

Science Update:

This week, students will be introduced to STEM/STEAM in science.  The students will be learning the difference between STEM and STEAM, we will be focusing on the Engineering Design Process, and the students will be working in teams to conduct a STEM lab on Thursday where they will work together to Save Fred!!

In order for the students to complete the STEM lab there are some supplies that we will need.  If you can, please consider donating the following items for STEM lab on Thursday:

Gummy Worms
Gummy Life Savers
Clear Plastic Cups
Paper Clips

Thank you, in advance, for donating any of the above mentioned items.  Please have your students bring them to Mrs. Westbrook when they arrive to school in the morning. 

Reading Update:

We are moving right along with our novel study. Students are working hard on their summary cards. Please note, if I assign these for homework please make sure your student is completing them. I don’t want any student getting behind in their work. The summary project is due on Sept. 8th! Novel study test is Friday, Sept. 8th. Students will be bringing home their project folders as soon as we are finished reading the book. These will help them complete their study guide as well as study for their test which is why I have it due on the test day! Please make sure they are brought back the day of the test because this is when the project is due!

Math Update:

Students took the Place Value unit test on Friday. They received their graded papers along with feedback today. Many students did well in the tests. To encourage them to use strategies and check their work, I had promised them bonus points if they show me evidence of their answers. Many students took advantage of it and realized how it helped them avoid careless mistakes. Students who did not do well in the tests will be pulled for a reteach session. They will get an opportunity to retake the test and their scores will be averaged.  They will also be expected to do some extra practice at home to help them master the skill.

We will be moving on to our second unit which is multiplying and dividing whole numbers. Please ensure that students practice their multiplication facts at home. We will be focusing this week on traditional method of multiplication and then move on to division.

I have updated all of the math grades in synergy. As and when I am grading their math binder, I will add those grades as well. Please encourage your children to check synergy with you frequently to learn to take responsibility of the grades they earn and set a goal for themselves for upcoming assignments.

Content Area Updates

It is hard to believe that we are already in our 4th week of school!!  So much has been going on in our classrooms, and we love what we see from our students!  Teachers will begin entering grades into Synergy, so please be sure you have confirmed your ParentVue account so that you can see how your child is doing in each class.

Here is what is going on this week across the curriculum: 


This week we will be continuing the reading of The Kid in the Red Jacket. Students are working hard on their summary project. If they have homework for reading class the next 2 weeks (not including independent reading), it will be to finish a particular chapter’s summary card. If a summary card if assigned for homework, please make sure your student is finishing it. I have had several students from each class not complete their homework from last week. It is imperative homework is complete in order for students to not fall behind in class. If you have not signed your student’s summary project sheet, please do so as this was homework last week as well.

Social Studies:

This week students will be learning about the Causes of the Civil War. We will be using many different types of mediums, maps, primary, and secondary sources to be able to explain and describe the tensions between the North and the South during this era of our nation's history. Students will be working in centers to achieve this goal, once we do that  we can move on to Civil War as a whole. 


We began our week with a Solar Eclipse WebQuest!  The students navigated through a website to read and record information about solar eclipses!  We saw the Path of Totality, we determined which phase the moon has to be in for a solar eclipse to take place, and we can compare lunar eclipses and solar eclipses!  We LOVED wrapping up our experience outside by viewing the solar eclipse with our solar glasses provided to us by Addison's Foundation!  WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THEM!

This week, we are focusing on plate tectonics and various types of movements within the Earth's crust.  We will be going to science lab this Wednesday where the students will use cookies, icing, and graham crackers to model each of the movements in the Earth's surface that we are learning about. 

News Flash!!  We will be having a science quiz on Friday, August 25!  Information on the quiz includes:  

1.  Key Vocabulary: ( weathering, erosion, deposition, constructive/destructive processes, hypothesis, delta, inference, conclusion, question). 
2.  The steps to the Scientific Method.
3.  Rivers and Sand Lab reflection.


This week we have been working on the last concept of the place value unit- Multiplying and Dividing decimals by powers of 10. Students have been asked to take their math binder home everyday this week to study and prepare for the unit test on Friday. 

Students are being given time in the class to finish the notes and classwork pages in the binder and ask for any clarifications if needed. Please encourage them to study using the binder and also the resources found in math blog. 

The test will involve all of the following concepts:

  • Ability to represent decimal numbers in word form, standard form and expanded form.
  • Ability to identify the value and place value of a digit in a number.
  • Ability to compare and round decimal numbers.
  • Ability to multiply and divide whole numbers and decimal numbers by powers of 10.
