Aloha Parents,

Can you believe it is November? I don't know where the time goes, but the days are flying by quickly!

Mahalo to everyone who generously shared Halloween goodies.  The keiki were beyond excited receiving the treats.  Hopefully, they'll save a few of their sweets for the weeks ahead and share some with you. Please have your child return the blue Walmart recyclable bags on Monday, November 3rd as they will be used for future holiday treats.

IXL is a great website for math practice, which can build confidence and accuracy. Students receive detailed tips if their answer is incorrect and there is the microphone icon which helps them listen to the problem if they can't read it. The K-1 keiki mentioned how they enjoyed working on IXL because of the rewards and immediate feedback.

The next IXL Math assignment, due on Tuesday, November 25th is:
  • D. Numbers and counting up to 20
  • E. Numbers and counting beyond 20
The myON reading assignment (minimum of 5 books) and Book Share will also have a due date of Tuesday, November 25th.

Have you heard of  It is a great educational website that provides interactive content to help young children with the basics of phonics, reading, and a little bit of math. It uses cute animation and sounds to engage the youngsters in the learning process. This site is a great supplemental tool and appeals to different learning styles. The best part about this is there is no membership fees.  However, there is a charge for the app. The children were excited about the site when they saw it this week. You may want to check it out!
