Media Lessons for the Week of September 30

In fifth grade, we continue our Office365 instruction with reviewing how to format a Word document.  We discuss margins, fonts, tabbing and saving.  Firth graders also received information going home telling them how to log into resources outside of school.

Kindergartners are working on the basics of Story Elements in the classroom, and we will focus on Who? Where? and What? (Characters, Setting and Problem in the most simplest forms).

Typing Accounts for All 3rd, 4th and 5th Graders

In order to practice for the computer-based Milestones, we are encouraging students to practice their typing skills.  Third, Fourth and Fifth grade each have Written Response portions that must be typed.  We have set up accounts for all student 3rd-5th so that they can systematically practice.  The log in information is as follows:

Media Lessons the Week of September 16-20

The week of September 16, our yellow team first and fourth graders and are learning more about reading and technology.  Can you see a theme for the month?

  • Second graders are learning how to decided the emotions of a character with W.I.S.T.R.  It stands for Words, Illustrations, Speak, and Think.  It ends with readers understanding the Response of the character.   The focus is on paying attention to details and putting them together to predict aspects of the text.
  • Third graders are getting an introduction to Office 365.  They are learning how to log in from school and complete a simple PowerPoint presentation on their favorite wild animal.

What are We Learning Sept 9-13

The week of September 9, our yellow team first and fourth graders and are learning more about reading and technology.  Can you see a theme for the month?

  • First graders are learning how to read with stamina.  The focus is on setting minute goals and taking “break reads” in order to increase the time readers can spend with books.  Students will know what readers with and without stamina do.
  • Fourth Grade is completing much the same as Fifth.  We are starting Office 365 by cleaning up our One Drive cloud memory in Office 365.  Then we are learning how to log books and minutes in Biblionasium, our campus book club website.
