Fill your bucket with good thoughts, good deeds and good choices

Everyone has an imaginary bucket. You fill your bucket when you do and say good things all day. You don’t want to be a bucket dipper and dip into yours or others bucket.

Our Visit To The High School Māla

As we are learning about how to create the best Māla, we need to visit and Kilo other gardens in our Kaiaulu. Students were amazed at the beautiful Kala and sweet potato plants. Students had fun feeding the goats and pigs. I think they wanted to bring back a goat to hang out at our playground.

Ms. Witch came to Visit

She flew in for a visit and to the surprise of our Keiki, she made us giggle. She shared a story, made us some witches brew, taught us a Ghost song and let us watch her magic broom dance. We now know that witches aren’t sooo scary.

New Center

This gallery contains 2 photos.

We opened a new play center. A survey was asked about what store students shopped at in our Kaiaulu and the majority of students said “Target”. Students learn the workings of a store, develop communication skills and build relationships.

Being A Master Counter

Students are learning…….

  • Sense of numbers – understanding that “five” means a collection of 5 objects.
  • One-to-one-correspondence-the last word in counting sequence names the quantity for that set
  •  Subitizing- recognize quantities of objects quickly without counting.
  • Being able to name numbers in terms of their parts (part-part-Whole)
  • Recognizing numbers and matching it to a collection
