Skunks or Porcupines

Which animal would make a better pet? Do you think the skunk would make a better pet animal than the porcupine? Or would the porcupine make a better pet animal than the skunk? We thought a lot about our two choices and decided which would be a better pet animal.

Aloha Parents,

Since the keiki have been learning about skunks and porcupines, it seemed like a perfect opportunity for them to reflect and share which animal they would like as a pet. They worked in small groups, then as a class to share their ideas before these short videos were taken.

In Language Arts, concepts reinforced, practiced, and/or enriched included: silent e words, digraphs: sh, ch, th, and wh, synonyms, compound words, etc.  Students were also involved in interactive writing, oral reading, and writing which correlated to the craftivity.

Some of the Math concepts practiced and extended were: addition word problems, more and less than, place value with numbers larger than 100, and fact families.

Dates to remember:
