In preparation for computer-based Milestones testing in April, third and fifth grade students are receiving extra instruction in typing. Each student has been given an account and assigned lessons at Typing.com. During their first lessons, all students received logins and passwords. Students will practice during weekly typing instruction but are also highly encouraged to practice in the classroom, computer lab, ASP and at home throughout February, March and Spring Break. Practice can only be completed on a laptop or desktop computer. Tablets and smart devices will not work. We want our third and fifth graders to feel successful and self-assured before the test begins. Please allow them to practice as part of their weekly homework.
We don’t want typing to get in the way of a good test score. Thank you!
Mrs. P and Mrs. M
