For our Ali’i Study of Kamehameha III- Kauikeaouli, Kamehameha IV- Alexander Liholiho, and Kamehameha V- Lot Kapuāiwa, students were given free choice of how they wanted to present their information about each ali’i.
Wallace and Brandon choose to do a glogster, which is attached below for all to see and view.
Haumāna, please review your rubric sheet in your tablet as the boys present their information.
It has been awhile since 4A has posted on the blog. We’ve been working hard and creating wonderful learning moments. One of those moments happened during our FLOW group.
Students read the Time For Kids article about kids choosing to eat healthy and fresh foods instead of precooked foods at lunch. This reading sparked an idea of our fourth graders taking action on a healthy dish that includes fresh island produce!!
This project took 2 weeks. Students created a healthy recipe that included local produce and stayed within a budget of $20-$25.
Then they needed to plan a 10-minute cooking demonstration.
As their kumu, I was awe-struck by their creativity and teamwork. Here are a few comments about each group:
Kelii and Carlos- Their veggie burrito was awesome!! Simple and easy for anyone to make
Karl and Logan- I was so proud of these boys. At first they didn’t know how to operate a blender, and after a few practice trials. Logan got. In fact, the class was crying for more fruit smoothies!!
Kaili and Tiani-These girls were VERY creative with their fruit cobs. They individually bagged fruits and cheese. Then they had each student create their own fruit cobs.
Ewalea and Candace- They make dark chocolate and fruits. Wow! dark chocolate on fruits was mouth watering. The girls did good job of swirling chocolate on banana and strawberries.
Hanalei and Wallace- They baked sweet potato fries!! With a drizzle of seasonings, these french fries were ono. I even made some at home for myself! It was so SIMPLE!
Kaupena and Kylan-These boys went all out! The energy bar with honey was delicious!! Then they had a yogurt parfait with fresh fruits and greek yogurt that was over the top!!
Tylee and Dioni- These girls made frozen yogurt pops! They blended everything in the morning and by 2:00 in the afternoon, they were ready to eat. It was easy to prepare and everyone really enjoyed it, especially Mrs. Bauer.
Brandon and Chadwick-Brandon was the iron chief, and Chadwick was Alton Brown. Brandon prepared the omelet as Chadwick explained each step. It was exciting to watch Brandon flip his omelet.
Ryzen and Kaena-With a song and pictures to go with their food, we were treated to an entire show of ants on a log. The last time I ate ants on a log was when I, Kumu Kala, was in elementary!! It was an amazing experience!!
Thursday marked a historical moment in 4A’s learning environment… We’ve gone live on Edmodo! Students have been using Edmodo in specials with Mrs. Chang and Ms. Richardson. Now they’re using it in 4A. We conducted two simple assignments, but more is on the way. Our first project in Edmodo will be a book club. We’ll read the book “Tuck Everlasting” by Natalie Babbitt. Students will have discussions with others in the class, turn in assignments, play and practice their skills with the different apps offered through Edmodo as well as take quizzes and instantly see their score!!
