A legend from Hawaii today. Meet Kahoali, Kana, Nihew and their grandmother, Uli.
Today, the story of ‘The Whisper Woman’! Before you listen to the new story, what can you remember of the Hawaiian story about how two young men brought the sun, moon and stars back to the sky? Good for you if you can remember anything, as that was 5 days ago!

A Place Value Math Game
Ones, tens, hundreds, thousands
Materials: a deck of cards that only goes up to 9. The ace represents 1. Remove all the 10s, Jacks, Queens and Kings
Object of the game: to end up with the most cards
Object of each hand: to arrange your cards in such a way that you have the highest number you could have.
Players: any number of players up to 5 can play.
- shuffle and put a deck of cards in the middle between the players.
- each player takes one card, and doesn’t show it to anyone, go around the circle with each player taking a card and then a second card until each player has 2 cards.
- Each player decides how to place those two cards so that he/she will have the largest number.
- Each player displays their number and the person with the greatest number takes all the cards.
- Continue until there are no more cards left
- The player with the most cards wins that round.
Note: we are not adding the numbers together but arranging them-example: cards 4,7, would be arranged to be 74 as that is higher than 47.
Variations: (a) make the highest number you can from among 3 or 4 cards, (b) make the lowest number from among 2, 3, or 4 cards
