On Wednesday we had an opportunity to visit the first grade classes in the purple wing! Mrs. Vidal, Mrs. Harada, Mrs. Villamin, and Ms. Kim and their students shared what to expect in first grade next year. We learned about recess, field trips, the different subjects we'll be covering, homework, and rules. It was awesome getting to mingle with first graders! We're so excited to become first graders next school year!
Ms Ikehara broke the class up into small groups and assigned each group an insect to research. We enjoyed working together learning about our insect through books and videos. We created a poster (all by ourselves!) of our learning and a diagram of our insect. We presented our insect facts to the other kindergarten classes. We had so much fun!
We had an amazing time performing E Alu Like in front of all our family and friends! Our song reminds us of the importance of always working together and being respectful. Thank you to speakers Connor and Sarah (K-9) for their awesome speeches. Thank you to Kacey for her beautiful drawing that was printed on the Festival of Music programs. A special thank you to the Beaupre' family and to Kumu Alohilani for sewing the beautiful plumeria leis for us and for pinning the flowers in our hair! We had a wonderful experience at the Festival of Music!
Math.K.G.5 - Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components and drawing shapes.
Ms. Ikehara gave us toothpicks and marshmallows to model two- and three-dimensional shapes. She was pleasantly surprised that we were not only able to build 2D shapes, but 3D shapes like cubes, rectangular prisms, and square pyramids! It was a piece of cake!
Zoologist, Charles King, spoke to us about Hawaii's reptiles and amphibians. He gave us an up-close look at Hawaii's amazing lizards, turtles, frogs, toads, and even a snake! We were able to touch and examine these fascinating creatures (if we wanted to). Mr. King was very informative about reptiles and amphibians living in Hawaii. We had an awesome time!!!!
What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday than to read! Did you know Dr. Seuss would be 114 years old this year? While he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on in the pages of his books. Today our special speaker, Officer Ilse from the Honolulu Police Department, read the book The Cat in the Hat to us. We enjoyed listening to Officer Ilse's expressive reading of the book. We also made cool Cat in the Hat hats to wear! Happy Birthday and thank you Dr. Seuss!
In celebration of the 100th day of school, the month of February was devoted to our 100th day projects. They were so creative that I took pictures of all of them! Let's continue to learn and grow another 100 days and beyond!
