Social Studies
In social studies we are beginning our Bill of Rights portion of our government unit.  By the end, our students should be able to explain a few of our basic rights from the Bill of Rights.  At home, feel free to encourage students to play “Do I Have A Right?” on icivics.org – The students play the role of manager of a law firm.  The more cases they win, the more lawyers they can hire, upgrade their facility, etc. 
 
This Friday we will have a test over the Executive and Legislative Branches.  A study guide will go out today with each student over what will be covered for the test. 

Math
This week we will be working on understanding decimal place value. There will be no homework.
