So many technology projects, so little time...could have been the motto for the month of May. May was actually a time when many technology skills learned during the year were pulled together to create some stunning projects.
Students in Kindergarten used reviewed skills they had learned during the year as they earned badges for the Technology Time Badge book. Both technology skills and skills in math and literacy were used to earn badges. Grade 1
students used their keyboarding, research, writing and digital arts skills to put together some very charming animal webpages. Grade 2
students created Animal Powerpoint presentations, published animal reports and created Animal Digital Stories for which they wrote content, provided narration, illustrated pictures and even created their own music. Grade 3
students learned Microsoft Publisher and used it to create brochures on their states. They also finished their American Indian webpages. Grade 4 and Grade 5
students used their netbooks and the laptop carts to research and type up a number of papers. Despite their heavy use, the laptop carts survived the flurry of activities much to my relief! It was definitely a busy but exciting month!
