Students in grades kindergarten to five have a new technology class this year at Saints Mary and Mathias Catholic School.
Students in younger grades started the year learning the parts of computers, and older students learned about Internet safety. In grades two to five, students have been learning typing and doing a wonderful job. Grades three to five have created PowerPoint presentations about acts of kindness. Students in kindergarten to second grade have used Kidspiration software to create webs about their likes and dislikes.
Children have used the Microsoft Paint program to create Advent Wreaths, used a comic strip program to create comic strips and are currently using Photo Story to tell a story about how students get ready for school in the morning.
This class has been a wonderful opportunity for students to learn technological skills they will be able to use in the future.
