3rd Grade Outreach Project

LES 3rd graders visited the Friends of Animals Shelter here in Lynchburg recently.  Students participated in an outreach project to help make the animals more comfortable with people to prepare them for adoption. The children read books to the animals. This project not only helped the animals, but the animals helped our students too. Our 3rd graders were able to practice reading aloud to an audience that could bark, but not speak. This provided a fun-loving reading experience for our students in which they could read with confidence.  We could have not done this without the help of Laura Swinford at the animal shelter!
