Welcome Back Third Graders!

I’m looking forward to another great year of helping you use technology with your learning. After the greeting, I will go over some important rules to remember when using technology. Then you will log in and practice your mouse and keyboarding skills with the games below:

1. Find the Technology– Look around the messy room for computer-related items.

2. Typing Rocket– You have 60 seconds to type the letters on the rockets.

Getting Ready…

Greetings Cottage Cougars,

I hope you are enjoying the summer break. I kept busy this summer with traveling and spending time with my family. Along with going to the beach several times, I also visited Bermuda with my wife.

This week I went into school and started getting the technology ready for the new school year. There are over 200 iPads, about 75 laptops, and approximately 50 desktop computers. That’s a lot of devices for kids and teachers to use! This year your class will do more with coding and exploring the maker space activities.

 Enjoy what’s left of summer vacation and I look forward to seeing you soon!
