Aloha

Did you know that Hawaii became the 5oth state on August 21, 1959? Well now you do.
This week in class we read Luca's Quilt, Junie B. Jones Aloha-ha, and other books on Hawaii.
We learned Hawaiian words and made our own leis. Today we tasted Hawaiian foods at our own little luau. Our menu consisted of Hawaiian punch, Hawaiian bread, ham cubes, pineapple, bananas, and coconut. We cracked open a real coconut and a whole pineapple for them to see and taste. It was a lot of fun (and very tiring). I think my students really enjoyed the festivities though. They loved doing the hula!
