Our Skype Experience

Early this morning our class Skyped  with a Kindergarten class all the way from South Hampton, Massachusetts. With Skype, we  could really see the students and talk to them using the computer. It was so exciting.  Reise showed them what a musubi looked like since they didn't know what it was. They had never eaten Spam too.  We sang them the song 'Leis' and they liked it.  We learned some things about them. Right now, the leaves are turning red, yellow, and orange colors.  Very soon the weather will be very cold  and even snowy.  They like to eat pizza and most of them bring home lunch.  They live in a rural area so there aren't  tall building or many cars.
We hope to Skype with them again really soon.

Our Honolulu Theater for Youth and State Capital Field Trip

On Wednesday morning we were so excited to ride the yellow school bus to Tenney Theater to watch a play about Dinosaurs. After that, we walked across the street and toured the huge State Capital. We learned all about the statues, the pillars, and why it is shaped like a volcano. I hope our parents take us there again to walk around.

Who Can Stack the Most Oreos?

We went to our grade 4-8 buddy classroom today for an Oreo Stacking Contest. It was a wild and fun time watching our friends trying to stack the most cookies on top of each other. Two boys were the best stackers, as they had 19 Oreos all stacked before they came crashing down. After we all had a chance to stack and count the cookies, we got to eat them. Yummy!!!!

National Dot Day

We celebrated National Dot Day on Wednesday, September 15th by wearing dots or polka dots, and holding paper dots.

How 'Bout Them Apples

Do you really know which apples have the most seeds? Our class activity was to find out which apples had the most seeds inside. Each of us got to choose an apple - Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, or a Granny Smith apple that was on the table. We had to guess which apple had the most seeds. Most of us really thought the Red Delicious would have the most seeds. It was so much fun to put our fingers into the flesh of the apple to find all the seeds in our apple. The surprising part was when we learned that the apple with the most seeds were the "Golden Delicious" apples. The best part of this activity was, of course, eating our apple.

K-1's First Day of School

Our first day in K-1 was filled with many smiles, much eagerness and a little bit of fear. We realized our old and new friends were here to share a journey.
