Today I worked with grades 1, 2, and 5 in computer class. We were having some trouble accessing our internet based activities so my students worked on some list making.
Second grade also worked on our alphabetical food list. They also worked on how to find items that aren't on the desktop by using the finder menu. For the second part of class we worked on KidBiz, reading articles and answering questions.
Fifth grade also worked on lists. The first few lists were done with our hands crossed on the keyboard. This made typing seem easy when we switched back to using our home keys with correct hands. We started on with an alphabetical food list and finished with a list of names. We ended class with a few minutes of Weave Silk followed by 10FastFingers. So far, 28 WPM is our top speed in 5th grade. Let's see if they can beat it!
Have a groovy weekend!
