Activities on Literacy & Numeracy and Technology

These are some of our pictures taken during our class activities. In this album you will see the children participating in making Samoan Koko Rice or Koko Alaisa and Japanese Sushi!

Building children's literacy and numeracy knowledge through making Samoan Koko Rice or Koko Alaisa was a strong feature of this activity as well as Japanese Sushi. New words were added on to their vocabulary and ongoing understanding of numbers, texture, taste and other mathematical concepts. Technological knowledge is embedded in these activities where children see the transformation of one substance into another form such as cooking rise with koko Samoa, mix it  with coconut cream and a bit of sugar. With making sushi, rice was also cooked then rolled up with seaweed sheets with tuna, meat or avocado. Children all participated in these activities under the supervision of the teachers where they have learnt about the process in cooking these food but the most fun part is eating them.

Empower children to learn and grow (Te Whaariki Principle: Empowerment, Ministry of Education 1996).

Hope you enjoy them.
