- This Wednesday, February 3rd, we will be helping Kumu Vene at the the Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond near the Humpback Whale Sanctuary in Kihei. Ven has asked that all students wear swimsuits and sun protection, have a water bottle, and wear shoes that are ok to get wet. He suggested tubbies (water shoes), but I think old sneakers will work too. Students should bring shoes they can change into after our time in the field.
- Next Wednesday, February 10th, we will go to Maui Nui Botanical Garden for the whole day. If you would like to receive school lunch on that day, please email me ASAP and let me know. I need to have the lunch count in to our lunch department by Thursday, February 4th. As with all Wednesdays, close-toed shoes, sun protection, and a water bottle are required.
HOMEWORK THIS WEEK: Please complete 1.5 hours of iReady MATH (due Sunday February 7th) and practice your spelling words.
MONDAY VIRTUAL: You have FOUR assignments.
First, explore the website for fishpond that we will be visiting on Wednesday. Click and read EACH page under the About the Fishpond drop-down menu (from Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond History all the way to Invasive Species).
Take notes on lined paper titled Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond about what you learned on the website and we will discuss it in class. You must bring in your notes to get full credit for Monday’s assignment. Take notes about the Hawaiian words you read and their definitions as well as the history of the fishpond.
Second, watch this video about the culture of fishponds in Hawai’i. Take notes on the same paper, this time with the title Video. These notes do not have to be long, just include words that you see and how ancient Hawaiians used fishponds.
Third, complete 45 minutes of Typing Club. Here is a timer.
Fourth, COMPLETELY FINISH READING YOUR BOOK!!!
With whatever leftover time you have (you should be spending about 5 hours working on virtual Mondays), please focus on iReady and studying for the week 19 spelling test tomorrow.
- Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond, don't forget to wear water shoes, a swimsuit, sun protection, and bring a water bottle.
