I can't believe it, but it's September! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. I've missed all of you so much and can't wait to see you! I also want to give a warm welcome to our new students that will be joing us at St. Luke and I can't wait to meet you!
We will be using Google Classroom for Grades 3-8 again this year and I will be posting your class codes this week. I will also be inviting you by email to join my class and I know some of you will be remote and not in person. For Grades 6-8, I will be giving you your codes when I meet with you in person next week and help anyone who is having difficulty joining my class. If you don't receive the code, please let me know and I will gladly send it to you.
This year we will be working on many exciting things, and I am sure we both will learn new things as we explore the Internet. Some of the topics we will be working on are Google Classroom (including Google Docs, Google Slides and Google Sheets), Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship, Keyboarding to strengthen your typing skills, Coding, and Freckle to just to name a few.
We will be using software and programs to help the younger grades learn proper utilization of the mouse using ABCYA, ABC Mouse, Typetastic and Teach Your Monster to Read. Below is a link to my website with links that you and your child can use at home.
I know things will be a little different this year as we start the new year, but I'm always here to help you in any way I can. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have. I know it's going to be a great year!
