Wow! I can't believe the first week of Summer School has come and gone! Our mornings are fast paced and fun. All the keiki are excited and motivated to learn.
Our camping unit began with the students answering the question, "Have you ever been camping?" Everyone has been listening to stories, writing campfire tales, learning to alphabetize using words related to camping, etc. in Language Arts. Math skills are also related to camping. They have been using a camping visual for graphing, tallying, and creating a bar or picture graph.
Weekly Assignment sheets will be distributed on Mondays. Please leave the Assignment sheet in their folder. All the students have been completing their homework assignments in class. I know you review it in the evening, which shows your support for their learning.
Summer reading is the perfect way for your child to pursue his/her individual interests and at the same time maintain and strengthen important reading skills such as vocabulary and comprehension. Reading is crucial to a child's success in all school subjects and in the world outside of school.
I am certain you encourage your child to read as often as possible. You won't need to visit the public library or purchase books because HMS students have access to myON, the on-line digital library. It is a great site for students as they are able to select from over 8000 books anytime and anyplace.
Besides their daily homework, each child will be required to read a minimum of 5 books using myON, by Friday, June 26th. All usernames and passwords will remain the same. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Dates to remember:
- Friday, June 26th - myON assignment due
A hui hou,
