We will be having Hat Day on Friday, October 11th to celebrate the learning the letter H!! Parent/Teacher Conferences are October 8th and October 10th. Please make sure you check your child's folder for your time. The Fall Carnival will be Friday, October 4th and Picture Day is October 1st. We would love it if you could continue to work with your child on writing their name at home. Thanks for all you do!!
Students in Mrs. Yarbro's class are having fun on recess!

Kindergarten

September has flown by with record speed! Thank you very much for sending apples to school to help with our apple study. We learned so much, created graphs, measured with apples, explored the inside of apples, and most importantly tasted them. We also learned the letter M and sight words: black, brown, white, like, at am, and, & please. In October we will be learning about pumpkins, bats, and spiders, the letters S, A, & T, and the sight words: did, eat, four, & get. We appreciate your help at home with checking folder, doing homework, and practicing letters and sight words.

Happy Fall Y'all! Please make sure you are signed up on Parent Portal (grades) & Remind. There are many things happening in October so please check Lakehoma's and your teacher's website. You should be getting notification to sign up for Parent/Teacher Conferences, these are on the 8th and 10th. We have started multiplication so have your child practice all of the facts nightly. We will have a weekly timed test on all of the facts. Our goal is to show improvement on our Data Binder graph for this skill. Reflex math is a great website for them to use at home. As always, if you have any questions/concerns for your teacher, please email/message them.

We are wrapping up our football unit. It has been fun watching them make up touchdown celebrations. We will begin soccer for our next unit. October is also fire safety month. please check your smoke detector batteries. We will also discuss the skeletal system and how to keep bones strong and healthy.

Music

We are excited to announce that this year we have the largest honor choir in Lakehoma history! Rehearsals are off to a wonderful start, and we are looking forward to our first performance at Lakehoma's Veteran's Day assembly on November 11th. We hope to see you there!

Art

We have had a busy September! We have created artwork to honor Western Days and for our fall art fundraiser using our element of art: lines! We also have been inspired by the contemporary artist, Heather Galler. I thank you so much for paying your child's art supply fee, which helps with our consumable items like glue, paper, paint, crayons, and pencils. Our Art to Remember fundraiser will start at the end of October and this year, we are raising money for brand new tables and chairs for our students. Look for a personalized brochure and letter coming home with your student soon! Thank you for all you do to support the Lakehoma Art Program!
