Technology Curriculm Objectives:
The technology curriculum for grades K, 1, and 2 loosely follows the overall kindergarten, first, and second grade curriculum. Computer lessons are prepared to reinforce lessons taught in language arts, science, mathematics, etc., This close integration between the classroom lessons and technology helps the children learn to use the computer as an additional tool for learning.
In addition, the second graders are exposed to coding concepts through the use of a programmable robot and iPad apps.
Students do not receive a grade in computer class until third grade.
Happy New Year!
Second graders are learning about Excel - primarily the concepts of rows and columns, and creating simple charts. In homeroom they have learned how to create tally marks, and all about charts. In the lab, they will be creating charts based on items they have counted from the bulletin boards in the hallways.
