    Shurley English 6 for December 6th

    Welcome back from Thanksgiving! This week finish Chapter 13, Lessons 2-4.  There is no writing assignment this week.  Use the extra time to polish up on your synonym/antonym pairs. Parents:  When we start back to school in January, we will be switching from Shurley English 6 Composition to Classical Composition.  If your student doesn’t already have Memoria Press’ Classical Composition I, Fable Stage, this would be an excellent time to order it.  Thank you!
