The Week of September 24, 2018

Happy first day of Fall!  I hope this change of seasons refreshes you and inspires new works you've never explored before!

Social studies lessons will include the study of the effects of the Holocaust on the people of Europe.  I addition, I've planned some lessons on the effects of the Revolutionary War and WWI on our country.  Please be sure to complete your follow-up assignments by the end of the week.  Our language lessons will include creating an outline for the informative essays we've been researching.  Your novel study groups will meet again this week to continue to read and discuss the stories with a focus on identifying similes and metaphors in the texts.
