Ka ʻUmeke will share the most up to date student learning data and the strategies we are introducing to address our challenges and sustain our successes. During the second part of the night ʻohana will have an opportunity to choose to attend one of two workshops. Both of these workshops are geared to provide ʻohana more information to support learning at home. Please register by checking one of the boxes below for the workshop you are interested in learning more about.
Papakū Makawalu Workshop School-wide implementation of Papakū Makawalu at Ka
ʻUmeke Kāʻeo began four years ago. This educational rearing methodology is one of the
ways in which we are innovating education. If you attended our ʻohana night earlier this
year, you will recall our presentation on our Papakū Makawalu Competency Assessment
that is changing the way we approach and utilize assessments. This workshop will be an
introduction to Papakū Makawalu through active participation in some of the lessons
and reinforcement activities that your keiki experience in their classrooms.
ʻOhana Math Strategies Workshop In this age of common core and "new math" has left a
disconnect between school and home in the math department. Ka ʻUmeke is currently working with
teachers and of course we must include parents in supporting keiki in learning math the number
sense way. Number sense is a way of seeing numbers so that understanding of how they fit
together is clear and keiki can effectively use numbers in their everyday life. This workshop will
provide a synopsis of the "new math" and specific strategies and activities you can do with your
keiki at home to help develop and strengthen their number sense.
