Welcome Back

What an exciting week for the K-1 keiki.  School is now in full swing.  The children are getting accustomed to the morning routine of dragging their frog into the pond on the IWB and placing their bags on the hooks. The best part is using an iTouch and selecting a word or math game while sitting on the carpet before the school day officially begins.

You are always welcome to view the children's creative work displayed around the classroom. Your child can share his/her work  as they put much effort into it.
Library class started Friday.  Mrs. Okamura reviewed how to handle the books carefully and return them on the due date. Hope you and your child have many opportunities  to share reading experiences with our Library books.
Mrs. Yoshikawa  has volunteered to be a  room parent.  She  requested help from another parent to share in the fun. Please contact me if you are interested.
1. Blankets were sent home home on Friday.  They should be brought  back on Monday.
2. Please be sure your child has a snack for  first recess so they can better concentrate in school.
3. Show and Tell started today.  This activity will  be part of the class routine on Wednesdays through Fridays.
4. If your child sees any interesting picture(s) of a local or global event in the newspaper he/she is encouraged to cut it out.  The picture(s) can be brought to class and posted on our K-1 Buzz wall. 
Bright Vacations is all about some activity the students enjoyed this summer. Detailed  and colorful illustrations with captions were glued to the children's 'sun'. Super work from the new Kindergarteners!


  1. Hi Mrs. Lee & K-1,
    Looks like everyone had fun this summer! I had a wonderful time in Philadelphia and Boston even though both trips were work related.
    Have a wonderful week everyone!
    Mrs. Jacobs

  2. Hello Mrs. Lee and keiki friends,
    I liked seeing your picture stories of your Bright Vacations. Oh my! but there certainly are a lot of boys in your class!!
    My class will be calling you via Skype later on in September. We don't start school until the 1st. What would you like to talk about? Maybe we could try "Hello, my name is___" for those kids who are feeling brave. We also have a September song we plan to sing each morning, that we could share with you. Have fun in school!
