Happy August

Evangelical Families,

School is finally upon us!

Looking forward to another wonderful year at Evangelical! The students begin this school year out with discussing computer etiquette, proper behaviors in the computer lab, and touching base on computer basics! I am requesting donations of Clorox Wipes and Kleenex for my classroom. I plan on continuing the cleaning of all the keyboards at the end of each day and that requires a fair amount of Clorox Wipes! Any donation is greatly appreciated!  Healthy students are the best students!

Thank you,

Ms. Jones

 

Only one more month and then its SUMMER!

The students in the Computer Lab have gotten ROBOTS! During the next couple of weeks the students will be working with Ozobots! These robots can dance, spin, and run! The students will learn how to set them up with codes that make them move. The classes will be working on color patterns for the robots as well as creating villages to make them move in! ozobot

Evangelical Families,

Can you believe it is March all ready? This month Kindergarten classes will start with the website teachyourmonstertoread.com! The students will all have log-in information that they can travel home with and use as well. The 1st grade classes will be working on ABCmouse.com. Their log-in will be the same as last year if they would like to complete tasks at home. The 2nd-5th grades will be working on coding using Kodable or Hour of Code. Many of the students have mastered Kodable and many games on Hour of Code! The 5th Grade students will also be researching and following the Iditarod that starts March 4th!  I am very proud of their hard work and enthusiasm to play! All of Middle School students will start on hourofcode.com. They will be able to code age appropriate games and computer skills! I look forward to seeing what the students can master this month!

Thank you,

Ms. Jones

During the month of January the students will finish up learning to problem solve while using the computer and by manipulating the computer functions to fix the problems that arise. All students are also going to start learning how to code! Kindergarten-2nd grade will be using a site called Kodable Dashboard. The 3rd-5th graders will be using hourofcode.com. The students thoroughly enjoy this time of year and I look forward to watching them learn some coding terms and tricks! I hope everyone has a terrific month!

The classes and I will discuss what will be in store for us once we return from break. Students will be switching roles from the computer basics to coding and robotics! I look forward to the months to come! I hope everyone has a terrific December month!!

Evangelical Families,

This month the students will be celebrating their veterans and what they are thankful for.  Kindergarten- 5th grade will start typing, to better their typing skills. They will also be able to create and print something to hang in our hallways to celebrate our Veterans.  The 6th-8th grade students will be practicing their typing skills while writing Thank You letters to our Vets and typing a Thanksgiving Traditions journal.  The Junior High will also be assessed on the parts of a computer and will be tested for their WPM for typing.  The holiday season is just around the corner and I look forward to seeing the upcoming projects be completed.

During the month of October, all of the grades here at Evangelical Elementary have been practicing internet safety and how to stop cyberbullying. The kids have worked with Common Sense Media, NETsmartz, Disney, and NSteens to practice safe technology use.

It is important for all of your students to understand their digital footprint and use technology for good!
