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. Please visit Bees and Honey website to build mouse skills.
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
