Re: Lewis River Academy
Upcoming Wednesday Workshops:
This month our Wednesday Workshops include:
Dr. Seuss Read Across America Day: Don your favorite PJ's, grab your favorite blanket,
Fractions of Food: Fractions and proportions make great sense in cooking. Come find how to make single portions of recipes to see how fractions are useful and delicious.
Workshop - Knights of the Writing Table Build Thy Battlements: Come ye knights and rally 'round to construct essay battlements to resist thine enemy's skeptical arrows. Bring ye thy feather pen, thy persistence and thy sense of humor. (Translation: How to organize argumentative writing.)
Tomas and the Library Lady Read Aloud: Prepare for our field trip to the play "Tomas & The Library Lady" with a read aloud of the book which inspired it and some fun activities to go along with the story. The World of Tomas: What’s it like to live somewhere without speaking the language? We’ll play a game to see what that’s like in preparation for going to see the play.
Principal’s Math Fact Challenge:
Students of LRA in grades K-8 are participating in an effort to improve their recall of math facts. Each grade level has a proficiency goal they will be working toward this month. In April, those who can demonstrate mastery will celebrate with a Pizza Party with the Principal.
Last month our teachers learned they were successful in earning a grant to purchase additional science equipment. They sent this attached photo to the retired school employees organization that provided the funding.
