8th Grade Band Performs With LHS Marching Band
The LMS 8th grade band performed with the LHS Marching Band Friday, October 31 at the home football game. The game was delayed due to bad weather, but the students performed the National Anthem before getting out of the storm. Despite the poor conditions, students persevered and represented LMS with pride and dignity.
Students in Mrs. Klabo's class have been learning about parts of speech. First students brainstormed words together. Second, they sorted words into parts of speech. Then they came up with 2 classifications for each part of speech (i.e.: abstract and concrete nouns). Then they drew labeled pictures to match each word they wrote down. Finally, the pictures were randomly distributed and students had to reclassify them and glue them on the parts of speech poster. They did a great job!
