Earth Protector

We have started a new Math topic about time and money. Besides identifying the penny, nickel, and dime,  and their value, they'll count groups of the same coins. You can also support development of your child's money skills by asking them to practice counting up with a single type of coin, then start mixing coins as s/he is quite proficient at counting up by 5's, 10's, etc.

They'll also be learning to sequence events and tell time to the hour. You could  use clocks around the house to practice telling time. See who can be the first to spot a clock that shows the exact hour, such as 5:00, 6:00, etc.

The children enjoyed the Easter treats shared by numerous class members.  Mahalo for your generosity.   Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!

  1. Wow K-1 what a great song! I hope you continue to "Reduce, Recycle and Reuse." We all have to do our part everyday not just in the month of April.
    I will see you next week.
