We have six mobile labs that move from classroom to classroom and two additional labs that are available for the teachers to check out for their class projects.  Each classroom has three desktop computers for student projects.

We now have a subscription to RainForest Maths and IXL Math with many fun and colorful math activities for each grade level.  Be sure to check out these great site in Curriculum Links.

This year, more than ever before, the students (3rd grade and up) are using keyboarding skills in Weekly Assessments and projects. There are many fun activities and educational programs available from the Keyboarding Sites link below.

Keyboarding Tips

Remember! When you practice keyboarding at home you need to use the Proper Keyboarding Position you learned in keyboarding class.

  1. Sit Up – your back straight.  Your feet together and flat on the floor
  2. Space – A comfortable space between you and the edge of the desk.  Don’t stretch your arms too far.
  3. Keyboard Centered and near the edge of the table or desk- the “H” key should be right in front of you.
  4. Wrists – Keep your wrists straight and fingers on the homerow keys.
  5. DON’T LOOK AT YOUR KEYS**

**Wear a Key Cover over your fingers–don’t get in the habit of looking at your fingers.

Things you can use as a key cover:

A paper towel, a kitchen towel, a napkin, a scarf, have your mom cut a piece of fabric, tape a piece of paper to the top of the keyboard.
