Week of January 24-28

SOCIAL STUDIES
The D-Day Invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, V-E Day for Europe…these pivotal battles will be our topics of discussion this week as we continue our study of World War II. During classtime, we are constantly “squeezing” the most we can out of our 50 minutes together. And even with all this “squeezing”, we still need a few additional minutes to complete the day’s work. For this reason, we will have homework several nights this week. I have listed homework below with the understanding that we may have to adjust the need to work at home according to how much we get accomplished in class. Please remind your student to double check the homework chart on the whiteboard to ensure homework assignments have not changed! I will also remind them each day during class!
