Week8, 2009-2010

The laptops were utilized in three different classrooms this past week. Mrs. Saldivar's class used the laptops to perform research for social studies. Mr. Ramirez's class used the laptops to finish typing their narrative stories as well as for digital story narration. Mr. Lee's students typed their reports on the various regions of California.

In addition to technology used in the classroom, the computer lab provided students with technology instruction. Here is a summary of what students did in the lab.

Grade 1: Students in Grade 1 completed their pages of the class ABC book on living and non-living things. Those who finished early, worked on BBC's "Dance Mat Typing", which is an excellent introductory typing instruction program.

Grade 3: Students in Grade 3 were introduced to a collection of online games designed to provide students with keyboarding practice. Students were encourgaed to practice keyboarding at home using the games that were introduced.
