Click - Double Click - Right Click

The PreK kids in Mrs. Asztalos' class were learning how to use a mouse.  They played games on the computer to help them learn their letters.  The Librarian, Charity Seals, put a dot on their fingers so that they knew which finger to use to click the buttons on the mouse.

Wow, they are young!

Google Earth

Second graders in Mrs. Moerdyk's class have learned to use Google Earth to explore the world during their map unit.  They traveled to Washington, D.C., New York City, London, Hawaii, Greenland, the Great Wall of China, several different colleges, and even found Bluebonnet Elementary!

The latest version of Google Earth continues to set the mapping paradigm. Accessible enough for casual users, Google has added features that make it a necessity for those whose topographic desires are more serious. Although Google Ocean is the big newsmaker in version 5, you can also check out the surface of our nearest neighbor, Mars, as well as incorporating historical Earth maps.

Great job Mrs. Moerdyk.

Technology Keeping Kids Engaged

"We were beginning to write an expository text on something that we are experts at - going to school.  We were brainstorming all the things we know about going to school: eating lunch, recess, reading, writing, math, etc." teacher Sara Gillian explains. 

In Spanish or English the students are excited about answering and seem to know the information well.
Way to Go Sara Gillian YOUR CLASS ROCKS!
