Hello wonderful LPA parents. Our scholars have turned in their first major project for science. I am excited to review the wonderful models of the solar system our scholars have created. Our scholars are still learning about the planet we live on, Earth and its water process. This week our students will learn about the deeps of the ocean as it relates to salinity and topography. Next week students will study the difference between currents, waves and tides.

MR. ADAMS' ELA/READING CLASS
In the coming weeks, we will be focusing on academic skills that will pertain specifically to the GA Milestones exam. I will administer a number of pre-tests to determine their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, I will be teaching them how to deconstruct the questions and writing prompts. I have found that students score poorly on the Reading and ELA sections because they do not know what the questions are asking them to do.
We will also continue to be heavily writing focused. Students are really getting on board with writing, and their enthusiasm shows in their writing and the excitement that they display when I give them writing tasks.
1) Review the most current ELA lesson or any lesson that was presented during the week for at least 10 min. each night.
2) Check LPA Website and Edmodo (ELA)
