This past rotation Mrs. D introduced the Common Sense Media digital citizenship website, Digital Passport to the 4th and 5th graders. We focuses on the first module on communication. We had great classroom discussions on how cell phones can distract us, followed by students logging into their Digital Passport accounts to test their knowledge of how to create strong passwords and practicing “multi-tasking”.
3rd graders had a review of keyboarding and why it is so important to practice our keyboarding skills. Then they logged into Typing Club and focused on good posture and keeping fingers of home row vs. hunting and pecking at the keys. We also discussed the Question of the Week which was “What is your favorite picture book?” – a logical question since November is Picture Book Month!
2nd graders reviewed our Ipad “rules” and how to take care of our ipads. Then they worked with an assigned partner to use the QR reader app to scan codes around the library regarding questions about our library and staff.

1st graders enjoyed listening to Mrs. D read the book Read it, Don’t Eat it! Students also time to check out books and have a choice time of 1st grade websites or reading.
Our Kindergarten classes enjoyed the story When I Get Bigger by Mercer Mayer. Students are also getting better at switching users on ABCMouse.com and getting into our school website without any help from an adult.
