Dear First Grade Parents:
This year the children are using the Computer lab to develop their technology skills. We are working on large monitor iMac computers and will be learning safety rule and procedures for the computer lab, the parts of a computer, practice using the mouse, learning keyboard basics, connecting to the grade level server, finding and saving files, and learning to be respectful of the equipment that we share with the school. We will be practicing these skills using a variety of software and internet based programs available to us at school. Some of these programs are also available for your child to practice at home. In the classroom we have 7 ipads as well.These are some of the programs we will be using:Seesaw web.seesaw.me
