Studies Weekly

Posted on

Parents,

Our class has been exposed to a new resource called Studies Weekly!  They were able to explore the site yesterday and read through different historical publications and earn coins.  Students can access this from home and complete different activities as we move through history!  I am encouraging students to complete Weeks 1-4 at home whenever they have free time in order to gain more experience with this resource and it is a great way to refresh their memory with all of the S.S. information they have learned thus far.  These great weekly publications help with various reading skills!

Here is the link to the resource:

Studies Weekly

Please bookmark it on your computer!   The link is also provided under the Homework and Learning Links pages with a username and password.

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Patel
