News from the ECP

May 22, 2014

As part of multicultural month, we learned about the land and the native people of the Big Island of Hawai’i. We read stories about Pele, the volcano goddess of Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. The Hawaiians believe that whenever Kilauea erupts, it’s because Pele is angry. We made two of our own volcanoes out of paper mache, an ECP tradition for the past three years. We painted and decorated them with glitter and lava rocks, then we erupted them with baking soda and vinegar as the kids watched and shouted in approval!
Lana’s mom Anna also gave a presentation for multicultural month one morning. She taught us all about Russia, where she is from. We all got cards with our names written in Russian. We also got to look at
the cool matryoshka dolls that Anna brought in. We learned about the weather, clothes, food, and animals of Russia. Thanks for sharing with us Anna!
Our kindergarteners are gearing up for their graduation projects, which they will present for the class and their parents in May. They are currently working on practice projects. Khaliq is researching honey badgers, Monty is learning about owls, and Liam’s project is about gardening. We can’t wait for their practice presentations!
