Ohana Alert for the Month of March

The 5B FISH! Are Ready!   They will be working hard both in and out of class…Makawalu 2018 is coming!  The students will be working on a number of projects simulateously.  We have been discussing this in class and have begun the work already.  The students should be fact collecting and doing research on their self-selected inquiry projects.  Students should be able to share with you their essential question and have a multitude of facts already documented.  Fact collections on topics should be an ongoing daily event both in and out of class! All actual writing will be done in class.  Mahalo for the support of keiki (and reminders)  at home as they plan and prepare for this elementary teaching and learning event! Time to synthesize all the learning in class and on huakaʻi to create Makawalu 2018: Ka Wai Ola, Ke Kai Ola…The Waters of Life!

They will also be working on Tri-Campus Math Performance Assessment by comparing and collecting cost & measurements of items for their Hurricane Preparedness Kits.  Each student has already researched items they feel are necessary for their personal kits and should have worksheet with an item list.  Mahalo for your assistance of planning a time when students can collect info at stores.  DO NOT PURCHASE ANY ITEMS!  Completed worksheet with cost & measurement due in class on Tues., Mar. 27, as assessment begins on this day.
