Students- Remember to check out the
main page for important and fun website links!
Look for additional Symbaloo Subject Webmixes to the right!
Also check out the online Portfolio of Student work:
Kindergarten-1st – Younger students will learn keyboard layout this year as well as use MS Paint. See the Keyboarding Symbaloo at right for some practice sites.
Younger students learn a lot through Microsoft Paint – especially using fine motor skills while being creative.
Parents — please note that all PC computers come with this application as part of Windows…(look in Start, Programs, Accessories…) so that children can practice at home. Students love this program and it really helps with their motor skills here in computer class!
They also love to visit the Starfall website for letter, phonics, and reading practice. Some of their favorite websites are Starfall.com, PBSKids.org, and LearningPlanet.com
TYPING WEB – online typing tutorial & typing games
ALL Students should spend time using the online typing tutor at Typing Web; scores will be tallied on leaderboard for grades 3-7 (leaderboards are reset every week). There are also numerous fun typing sites found on the SYMBALOO keyboard webmix (at right column) .
We are discussing various aspects of Digital Safety and Citizenship through the Common Sense Media curriculum. Parents are asked to participate in the discussion with their child.
