- Lā ‘Ohana Activity Focus: Mindset Mathematics – Using operations flexibly
Successful users of mathematics have something – a comfort, a confidence that helps them jump into any situation that needs solving and apply their mathematical knowledge. These successful students do not necessarily know more, but their approach to mathematics helps them in every learning situation which requires that they choose which method they use. When we only ever teach students by showing them methods that they practice, they never learn to make choices about methods or enter a mathematical situation with the realization that they can make designs about the mathematical direction. At all times, it is important to remind students that they are mathematical problem solvers or investigators and that part of their role is to make decisions about topics, to think about areas to pursue, and mathematical methods to use. ( Jo Boaler, 2017)
‘Ohana Survey Follow-Up
- We will invest in an online program called Seesaw to…
- be transparent and open on “what” and “how” students are learning in school.
- provide better follow up on student progress, both socially and academically.
- show how homework connects with schoolwork.
- build active engagement between home, school, and child through video, photos, and self-reflections in Seesaw’s journal.
- support better triangulation between school, home, and child through blog communication in Seesaw.
Approval to use this program was granted by administration a week ago. We hope to share more information with our ‘Ohana soon. As required by our administration, we need to get trained prior to launching it with our classes.

Aloha e nā ‘Ohana,

**9/18/18 – Huakaʻi Update
E kala mai e nā ʻohana – we are very sorry for not communicating this with all of you sooner. We are sorry for this lack of communication. We will work on sending home information sooner!
Tomorrow we will be going on a huakaʻi to visit KTA, Big Island Candies, and Liliʻuokalani Gardens. The purpose of this huakaʻi is to capture images of arrays to link with our multiplication/ division unit. We are using arrays as a foundational strategy to help build conceptual understanding of multiplication/ division. The students have been working with arrays in different capacities over the last two weeks. We want to bring relevancy/ application of math in our classroom to the larger community.
We don’t have any special requirements for this huakaʻi. Students will come to school in uniform with their backpack, planner, iPad, water bottle, and jacket.
Again, we apologize for the lack of communication and please know that we will send home ahead of time in the future.
Mahalo nui for your understanding,
Kumu Kala & Kumu Hokoana
