Huakaʻi to Hilo Farmers’ Market

Papa ‘Ekolu students took a trip to downtown Hilo to visit the Farmers’ Market. Students are currently learning about the economy and were able to contribute to our economy by being consumers. They had a limited budget to buy items such as breads, fruits, vegetables, and more! In addition, students observed how the various vendors run their businesses. The students studied the way items were displayed, priced and packaged. This is in preparation for their own Market Day that is being held in February. It was an enjoyable day of outdoor learning!

Ho’omaika’i e Nā Haumana

A’o- to learn; to teach.

Our students honored at today’s luncheon were Kahele and Lucas. These two awesome students are perfect examples of A’o. They appreciate the opportunity to learn here at school and take their studies very seriously. Both Haumana are excellent role models for their peers. Congratulations, Kahele and Lucas!

Blog Post for Homework

Aloha e na Keiki,

After school today, Ms. Everett informed me that some of her students were having trouble with their blogs. I don’t know if our class is experiencing the same issues, but if you are, please don’t worry about completing the blog assignment for tonight. I will give you time to do it in class on Tuesday.

Mahalo,
Ms. Manliguis

1st Snow Day in Boston

This morning brought the first snowfall in Boston for this Winter Season (not sure if winter officially started yet though. Unfortunately, the snow didn’t stay snow for long and by the time I looked outside, the ground was basically wet. The air is a lot colder than earlier in the week. Tomorrow morning is supposed to be about 29°. I guess I’ll feel how that feels because I’ll be headed to the airport by 6 a.m.

I’ve had a fabulous week in Boston learning about this great city as well as ideas for teaching with digital media. Attending the iPad Summit affirms that our school is definitely headed in the right direction with iPads and that we are blessed to have what we have. Mahalo nui loa, Ke Ali’i Pauahi, for providing for me this wonderful learning experience.

Day 4 in Boston

The first day of the iPad Summit was a long one. I attended five sessions in all in which presenters shared their work with iPads in the classroom. Many teachers are taking advantage of the iPad because it is a great tool that engages learners and allows them to seek out there curiositities as well as challenge their creativity.

In the afternoon, Miss Everett and I visied Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market again. I was able to eat some delicious Boston Chowder for the second time on this trip. We also took a walk to Little Italy for more cannolies from a second pastry shop that was recommended to us by several Bostonians. Yes, it was yummy!

We ended the night at a cool ice room. It was about 20 degrees and we had to wear these puffy ponchos to keep warm. Well, at least try to keep warm. It was FREEZING in there. But there was an ice sculpture of Olaf, a mermaid and even a swan. Totally awesome place to hangout for a short while.

Itʻs nice to be back in our warm, comfy hotel room. But itʻs almost midnight and I need to get some sleep. Thereʻs another long day ahead tomorrow. Until then… aloha!
