It was a little crazy in the computer room during kindergarten specials this week. Students had fun learning about the keyboard by playing keyboard BINGO.
MAP testing is over! 4th grade is back to working on Kidblog, and they published their first post. Students wrote a poem to introduce themselves. Next week we will be learning how to make quality comments. Be watching for their next post.
The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970 in the United States. It is now recognized by 192 countries. In honor of this important cause kindergarten through 3rd grade classes have been working on various green themed technology projects. Check out some of the kindergarten creations.
This week in the computer lab....
Kindergarten reviewed their shapes using the online games Shapesville and Shape Splat. They also practiced making words using the same ending letters with Starfall.
First grade used Keyboard Zoo 2 to practice typing sentences with capital letters and end punctuation.
Second grade worked with Google Sheets to create a chart showing whether students in their class thought they were more like the tortoise or the hare. They learned to insert a row, center their information within a cell, change the color of certain cells, and increase the font size for a row and column.
Third graders had fun creating an April Fool's Day story with their classmates. They rotated around the room adding one sentence to the story being written on that computer. Students learned that punctuation and capital letters are important to help us understand what has been written.
Fourth grade continued to practice their typing on typing club. They also completed a scavenger hunt about Jefferson City to prepare for their upcoming field trip.
