Hard to believe it's the month of March.  Here's what is happening in the lab in March:

Kindergarten and 1st Grade:  We are getting our first taste of word processing using Microsoft Word.

2nd Grade:  We will be working with spreadsheets and then digital citizenship to end the month.

3rd Grade:  We will be working with spreadsheets making simple graphs and merging cells.

4th and 5th Grades:  We will be learning some keyboard shortcuts and then working on Digital Citizenship.

Have a great spring break!!!

New Technology in the House

Here are some online safety cards that you can use as a contract to set boundaries with your child and his/her technology.  All you have to do is print it out and fill in the blanks.  It serves as a great starting point for conversations about digital citizenship and safety (so important with your child).  Find the cards at this link:  There is lots of other good information at this site.  Enjoy.



I'm using a new website in the computer lab this year.  It is a work in progress.  Here is the link:  This is the website I have used in the past.  It has some good keyboarding sites on it and some other things we have used.  I will no longer be updating it.
