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 an program called Key Skills.

The 5th grade will focus on finding reliable sources, sorting these facts, and presenting the results.

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 be completing a research project. Stay tuned for more information!

In second grade keyboarding skills transition to word processing skills. Students become familiar with Microsoft Word by composing, editing, and formatting stories and projects they have created. They will share these projects with their classmates.

Grade 7 will be creating their own Digital Breakout. It is a fun way to incorporate lots of puzzles and have their schoolmates attempt to crack the code!

Third graders are working on research skills. They are finding the main idea of non-fiction texts and summarizing in a word processing program. They collaborate and presenting their findings to the class.

Grade 8 is exploring the topic of heroes and the sacrifices our service men and women make for our country.
