LEH hosted Hawaiian Celebration Wednesday

sm-may2015 021

Donna Majchrzak presented a Hawaiian Celebration at the Little Egg Harbor Library Wednesday, May 13 to 46 special needs students and approximately 30 adults.

Donna created a PowerPoint presentation that included pictures of a Hawaiian pineapple, rainbows, erupting volcanoes and coconut trees. Donna explained the pictures, passed around two coconuts and held up one pineapple for all the children to feel and see.

Three stories were shared including “Georgia in Hawaii: when Georgia O’Keefe painted what she pleased” by Amy Novesky, “The tale of the Three Hawaiian Pigs,” and “The Magic Shark and Rhinos Who Surf”by Julie Mammano. There was also music from Disney’s “Lilo & Stitch Island Favorites.”

The PowerPoint presentation also included Hawaiian words and pictures for the fish “ama ama” and Hukilau, a traditional dance. Everyone stood up and learned the dance along with the YouTube version of Hukilau from St. Michael’s Community in Hawaii.

At the end everyone designed their own surfboards on white oak paper. Every student and adult had received a lei when they arrived at the branch. The leis were sponsored by the Friends of Little Egg Harbor Library.

Everyone had a great time!
