Links for Learning
Here are just a few of my favorite websites we will use A LOT this year! Many of them do require a login - username and password. Your children will be using these sites on almost a daily basis once school starts so they will SOON be able to transfer that information and access the sites at home as well!
Along with websites and general internet skills I will address with them, we do many projects and in-school assignments on our laptops with Microsoft Office: Word, Excel, and PowerPoint!!!
Often we will do weekly spelling words in list form using MS Word - bullet lists and numbered lists; later in the year we will type spelling words into complete sentences; we will create a table and type our spelling words into the tables & focus on columns and rows; and we will learn to format our font - color, size, style, underline/bold/italics, etc!
These skills, among many other interesting things that cross my mind throughout the year will have a profound impact on your child's learning as I find it essential to incorporate and integrate technology into our curriculum!! And, whenever I can find a way to do that - I will!!
I can't wait!!! I hope everyone looks forward to a fun, exciting, adventurous 1st grade school year!
