Recyclable Treasures

Earth Day is just around the corner and celebrated on April 22nd. It is a special day for everyone to remember to protect our Earth.

With the help of our 7th grade buddies, we used recyclable items brought from home to make these art treasures which remind us that it is good to reuse things.

Aloha Parents,

Mahalo to everyone for sharing a mountain of recyclable items.  Not only were they used for Math lessons in subtraction and graphing, but for the fantastic 'Recyclable Treasure' activity and the upcoming 'An Earth Day Story' play.
Topics in Math have been focusing on Addition and Subtraction.   It would be helpful if you could reinforce these basic math operations in their normal daily lives. For example, just keeping score in some sports requires math skills.  Also, shopping takes some math knowledge if they are comparing prices of toys or candy.
Please continue to encourage your keiki to practice skip counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's on a regular basis.  Working on skip counting enables students to visualize the number relations with respect to all the four operations of math, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

A hui hou,
Mrs. Lee
