Hello, and welcome to a new school year! My name is Jamie Lord and here is a little bit about me. This will be my ninth year teaching at Lakehoma and my sixth year teaching the first grade. I have also taught second and third grade. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in 2010. I grew up as a “Military Brat” so I have lived in several places but I call Mustang home. I have a beautiful daughter named Korra who is almost 2 years old. I love teaching first grade and I can’t wait to go on this year’s learning adventure!

Spelling

*The Spelling Lists are located on the right under Spelling. Click to download each list. -------------------> 
 
Students will not be given a list of words to study at home each week. Instead, we will focus on the phonics skill we are learning each week and the test on Friday will have words based on that skill. Students will need to know all of their letter sounds and their weekly phonics skill in order to be successful on the test. This will help students build their spelling knowledge and retain the skills rather than just memorizing words. Example: Short A sound phonics skill: Practice all short A words at home: at, am, cat, ran, dad, map etc.

Homework

*If there are any daily assignments not completed during the school day, they will be taken home to be completed.

*Math homework will be in Daily Folders every Monday-Thursday (*There will not be a math homework given on the weekends)

*Please read a minimum of 20 minutes each day and practice math facts for at least 10 minutes.

*Throughout the year there will be various projects or assignments to complete at home.
