Kindergarten is practicing pointing, clicking, and becoming acquainted with the keyboard. They use KidPix and go to websites such as Starfall and ABCya.com. Students are focusing on phonics and spelling with a program called Key Skills.

The 5th grade has finished their E.A. Poe research project.
Keeping with this season of giving they will "shop" online for family and friends using a spreadsheet to stay within their budget.

Our first graders continue to improve their keyboarding skills by creating seasonal word lists, writing stories, and completing simple research projects such as weather.

The 6th grade will then be using a spreadsheet to help track their expenses for a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

In second grade keyboarding skills transition to word processing skills. Students become familiar with Microsoft Word by creating seasonal projects they share with their classmates.

Grade 7 is finishing Digital Breakout. They will share their puzzles with each other and other students in the school.

Third graders are working on research skills by exploring how other countries celebrate Christmas.
