Hawaii Children's Discovery Center

Last Friday, the Kindergarten classes had the opportunity to visit the Children's Discovery Center and  explore three exhibit galleries. In 'Your Town' they could be anything they wanted to be as a grown-up such as a fireman, banker, mechanic, postal worker, and even a star in a theater production.

In 'Fantastic You', the keiki took an inside look at the wonders of the human body.

'Rainforest Adventures' taught the students the importance of rainforests around the world and even in Hawaii. They learned about our natural resources and taking care of the environment.

A note from Mrs. Lee:
Several students have mentioned how they enjoyed listening to stories on myON Reader.   I am glad they love this library of online books.   Continue to encourage them to read often and ask questions about any stories you read together.
Book sharing will begin this month.  Each child will select a book you have read to them and bring it to class.  To cultivate sharing in the classroom, they will:
  1. Show the book to the class, stating the title and author
  2. Explain their favorite part of the story
Please practice this at home so they are comfortable with this oral presentation.  Kindly email or send a note when your child is ready for his/her book share.
Please remember:
  • Monday, October 8th - Library Books due
  • Friday, October 12th - Presentation of Learning in K-1 classroom at 8:30 -9:30 a.m.
A hui hou,
Mrs. Lee
