Field Trip to He'eia Fish Pond

On Tuesday, February 5th, 2013, my classmates and I went on a field trip to the He'eia fish pond. What we did there was we got to eat the Akulikuli to cure our bodies. We got to listen Ms. Mahea and she told us 2 stories that became legends. The 2 stories were about a lady who can transform into anything, and there was a man who was a rougher, meaner and a really, reall strict person. What we also got to do was that we wemt to pick out mangroves out from the ground because Ms. Mahea had told us that if there are a lot of mangroves that are growing around the river that is not good because if there are a lot of them growing, then there won't be enough clean environment around. Then we did a scavenger hunt and we had to grab 5 mangroves, 5 pieces of trash, find brackish water, and draw 2 native plants. We learned a lot on that day and it was the best field trip.

3 W's Mobile Project

During this amazing and interesting week, our class, F204, started and completed our 3 W's project for social studies. The 3 W's are wind, wings, and last, but not least,  waves. The 3 W's project was about how plants and animals migrated to Hawaii. F204 worked very, very hard on this and put a lot of quality work into their projects.  We all hope to start another interesting project soon!

Our first day back - photos

We got right to work, setting goals and choosing new books for the new year.

 Our new table names

 Essential agreements are vital for a happy classroom.

First day of 3rd Quarter!

Yay! It's finally 3rd quarter. Time flies so fast. Soon it's going to be 4th quarter and then the end of the year. So far all of this time we've been in 4th grade as kids, but we know we will leave as knowledgeable kids. 3rd quarter will be much harder because it's almost the ending of the school year and teachers want students to be prepared.

For our first day back from break, we focused on organizing our classroom. We went over the January calendar, cleaned out our binders, and organized our assessment folders. Each table group decided on a table name, wrote their essential agreements, and created a team poster. Finally, we set our goals for 2013 and found new books to read. It was a busy and productive day. We're all looking forward to what the new year will bring.
