Recently Mrs. Cadotte's 7th grade English students were each given 1 of 18 events from their current novel study Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen. They had to work together to put the events in chronological order and identify which events actually happened. There were three fake events, but true to the characters' personalities. The fake events were quickly dismissed as fake, and great discussion took place over the wording of the events - verb tense and adjectives were a HOT topic! Leadership and problem-solving skills quickly emerged and they were able to complete the task with little need to refer to the text. One student commented that it didn't even feel like they were working, but they were working hard! Mikaelsen visited Willow River Area School during National Education Week of 2019. #WeRWillow

Mr. Frentress' Construction class has been busy learning to use some new concrete molds that our school was able to purchase with our Career & Tech Ed grant. Students have been exploring how to prepare the molds, the correct ratio of the mixture, how to use the dye, how to get them to settle and the curing process. Lots of hands on learning, combined with science and math. #CTE #WeRWillow
