Hour of Code
Ms. Margaret loves to have help in lab. You do not have to be an expert! If you have any questions, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For students: How to Hold the Mouse
1st session (August - October)
The focus this session is on learning rules of the lab and gaining mouse control via websites designed for this purpose (click Kinder links and then Mouse Skills).
2nd session (October - December)
More focus on mouse control and learning how to fix mistakes. We continue to use websites and begin to learn how to use the Paint app on the computers. This affords students the opportunity to learn how to fix mistakes. We also participate in the school-wide (indeed, world-wide) Hour of Code.
3rd session (January - March)
Continue focus on mouse control, fixing mistakes, how to use apps on the computer (how to open, how to close).
4th session (April - June)
In addition to above, begin to learn where keys are on the keyboard and create simple word documents (using LibreOffice).
