ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

Kindergarten-1st Grade 

Younger students will learn computer parts, keyboard layout, and mouse use this year as well as use MS Paint and the website Starfall.com.  Right now we are visiting  Bees and Honey website to build mouse skills. You are invited to check out the Computer Basics Symbaloo at right for some cool websites!

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 following websites for fun and practice..  Some of their favorite websites are Starfall.com, PBSKids.org, and LearningPlanet.com

+ ATTENTION STUDENTS & PARENTS+

Parents please be aware of the policy here in Computer Class…

Students are responsible for their own work.  If a child is absent on a class day, it is his or her own responsibility to find out what was missed and the work that is due. Work may be submitted to me via email if there is a problem printing it out at home.

5-8 grade students are expected to use Google Docs for their assignments.

PLEASE save work as either TXT or RTF files.  Students may use flash drives to transport work between home and school.

Homework is NOT an OPTION for this class. If an assignment is given, then it is expected that students will get the work done within that week’s time.  Work turned in more than a week late will receive a grade penalty. Work turned in more than 2 weeks late will not be accepted.
