Second Grade have terrific technology skills. We continue to practice mouse skills and navigating between programs. We work hard as digital artists using kidpix while also practicing basic skills. This year, second grade students will begin using Microsoft Word and other applications to demonstrate learning. Students also develop a love of literature through stories, book chats, and exploring the Monfort Library collection.
Third Grade students are developing their technology skills and expanding their digital literacy. We use technology to connect with and enhance curriculum. Students explore sites to gather information, develop multi-media projects, and explore the world around them. Each week students are able to check out one book from the Monfort Library.
Both 2nd and 3rd grade students receive instruction in digital literacy and internet safety. I use lessons and activities developed by Common Sense Media to hep prepare students for the digital world.
