Kindergarten


 

Kindergarten Technology

Students spent the first computer class of the year learning the computer lab rules and different parts of the computer.

Students spent several computer lab classes learning how to use a mouse through a variety of engaging educational activities on the Playground page of the website, FunBrain. Students continued to refine their mouse skills with additional activities on the website, ABCya.com.

Students also used typing programs on ABCya.com to continue building their keyboarding skills - Keyboard Zoo reinforced correct use of right and left hands for the different letters, and Cup Stacking and Type Rocket Jr. reinforced letter location while motivating students to increase their speed in order to improve their scores. Keyboard Zoo 2 teaches students how to type uppercase letters and short sentences.

 

Students and teachers spent November and December learning computer coding. They started off the sequence by learning basic coding concepts on the iPad working through the 20-hour Course A on Code.org. They then continued to work through the course on the desktop computers in the lab in December. Coding activities involve assembling a series of commands into a simple program to move characters through a maze, perform a series of tasks, or draw geometric designs and pictures. In December, LP Kindergarten students will join million students from around the world and participated in the Hour of Code. (See Code.org Classroom Links below)
