Welcome to Mrs. Hicks' Kindergarten
Aloha Kinder Families,
Over the next two weeks we will be providing online instruction through Google Classroom. All learning activities will be accessible on our classroom page. Each student will be able to access the weekly and daily agendas with parents support via the Google Classroom app on the school issued iPad.
***Please feel free to contact us with any questions big or small. Normally, we are asked 500+ questions a day so we are missing your child’s amazing curiosity.
Kindergartners are just like MENEHUNE. They are "LITTLE PEOPLE WHO CAN DO AMAZING THINGS!". We, the kindergarten team, strive to design 'aina-based integrated inquiry units which challenge your menehune to be curious learners inside and outside the classroom. Our units are driven by S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) principles. In addition to our academics, we focus on social emotional learning using the Emotional ABC's curriculum, which nurtures cooperative learning and a feeling of ohana between us and our students.
We use the curriculum below to support our inquiry units.
English Language Arts/Social Studies - Reading Wonders, i-Ready, Smarty Ants App
Math - Stepping Stones & i-Ready
Science - Inquiry Units
Mahalo for supporting your little menehune!
The Kinder Team
