Kindergarten - Today in the Technology Lab

Today our Kindergarten classes worked in Marble Math. Students continue to work on click, click/drag, and scrolling while counting and adding marbles. I want to encourage you to watch your child as they work in Marble Math.
We continue working with Moon Rock Patterns. Students added to the pattern by choosing the correct color moon rock while clicking and dragging the stones.
Your children are a joy to have in class. It is such a blessing each week to watch as their skills sharpen while working on the laptops. I am thankful to the Lord for this opportunity as He molds their lives.
God bless,
Mrs. Whipple

January 2011 - Technology Project for 3rd - 6th Grade

Proverbs 14:15 (NIV): "A simple man believes anything,
but a prudent man gives thought to his steps."

For the month of January our 3rd-6th graders have been working on "My New Year's Resolutions" project. Third graders have been introduced to Pages which is part of the iWorks Suite while 4th - 6th graders continue to develop skills using this program.

January Assignment:

-Students create a flyer using iWork Pages

-Students will be introduced/review font, font size, reflection, shadow, copy, paste, save, save as, shapes, font color, background color, inserting photos/pictures and deleting.

- Each student must list two resolutions for Personal, Family & Friends, and School.

- For each resolution the student must list how they will accomplish this and when.

- The flyers will be printed and placed in an envelope to be returned to students during their last technology class in May. Students will review their flyers to see how they have done.
