New Year

Welcome to Computer Classes

Through the use of computers we will work on programs such as Word and Google Chrome to reinforce lessons in the classrooms.  Students will learn numerous features of software programs.  They will also work on STEM projects.  

Check out Useful Links to access some productive websites.  

Remember to monitor your child's usage on the Internet.  If you need help look at the suggestions on the websites you will find under Useful Links.  

Please keep dark tape on your computer camera.  Sadly people do try to access your computer. Take every precaution to keep your family safe.

What we're working on:
PreKindergarten has been working on how to click and drag.  This can be a challenge due to the size of their hands.  Using websites such as Meddybemps, students work on topics relating to their classroom lessons as well as practicing mouse skills.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade continue to work on how to use a mouse, access programs and learn how to use program features such as Word and Kidpix. 

Grades 2, 3, & 4 are starting some STEM projects.  They will be learning the design process then we will start working on the STEM Kits to apply the design process.

5th Grade will begin working on keyboard features, files and folders in Windows, and special functions in Word.  

6th & 7th Grade have been creating presentation using Google Slides.  

8th grade is working of Photo Story and how to create a jpeg using Powerpoint.
