In September, we’re going to be busy in the Computer Lab!  We’re done with RI and MI testing, so now we can begin to work on important technology skills.  This month, all grades will be working on a unit about Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship.  In today’s world, this information is vital for students to be aware since they are surrounded with technology opportunities, both good and bad.  They will learn to be smart and safe.

We will also celebrate International Dot Day inspired by the book “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds.  We had a great time with this last year combining technology skills with creativity.  The kids love creating computer art and “making their mark”.  Looking at their art all year made me smile!  I have a few surprises in store for them this year to help them combine art and tech in another way!

We will also start visiting the HOT Spot in alternating rotations.  The students have been waiting (kind of patiently) for testing to be over so they can start to visit one of their favorite places in the building.  They think they’re just having fun while the activities are building higher order thinking skills and cognitive learning.

We have a lot happening in September!!  I can’t wait to share some of our creations with you!
