Mrs. D is happy to see how comfortable our kindergartners are with using their mouse. During this rotation students started using Starfall.com and learning to choose and maneuver their way through a website. Mrs. D is also sharing Halloween stories this month including Clifford’s First Halloween and Go Away Big Green Monster.
1st graders are learning the importance of being safe on the Internet – Mrs. D is showing students the Cyber 5 rules from ABCya. 1st graders are also practicing keyboarding skills using three different websites.
2nd graders are being reminded about the importance of friendship. Mrs. D is reading Nobody Knew What to Do and discussing what we all can do to end bullying.
3rd graders are reviewing how to be an “upstander” instead of a bystander when bullying occurs. Mrs. D is using an excellent video from the NED Show website.
4th and 5th graders are being given the chance to sign up for this year’s Battle of the Books – Check out this great Animoto introducing this year’s list of books!
