Renaissance Learning Tests
Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade completed their first round of computer testing in October using the program from Renaissance Learning called Star Reading, Star Early Literacy and Star Math. Results are used by classroom teachers to plan classroom activities and interventions. Results are also shared with parents at Parent/Teacher Conferences.
Students are currently working on their Kenn Nesbitt Poetry Books. They have chosen 4 poems to type practicing their home row keys. They will learn to format the text and will learn how to insert an image, re-size it and move it on the page.
Projects for core classes
Working with their classroom teacher, students completed typing their Personal Narratives using Microsoft Word. This project introduced very important technology concepts.
Using the Wixie Program, students created a project using their name in an Acronym Poem.
Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade participate in a nationwide project called The Hour of Code. This is a program created by big names in the computer industry to get young children interested in computer programming. The Hour of Code occurs the 2nd week in December. There are several different grade level appropriate tutorials that the students complete during a one hour technology class. Following The Hour of Code, students continue to focus on computer programming in tech class using the website Code.org and Scratch.mit.org.
