Digital Media K – 2

Kindergarten

Kindergarten students continue to work with Seesaw on the iPads to practice using a variety of iPad functions. Most recently, students have completed a series of activities related to fall. In some of the activities students were asked to count and record the number of fall related objects. In another, students were provided with a digital template of a tree and then decorated the tree in a fall theme. The goal of all of these activities is to encourage students to be comfortable and confident problem solving on their own and combining drawing and text in their projects.

First Grade 

First grade students continue to work with Seesaw on the iPads to practice using a variety of iPad functions. Most recently, students have completed a series of activities related to shadows, which we have been studying in science class. Students drew pictures on the iPads that demonstrate how a shadow is made. The students also used the note portion of the Seesaw app to write about how shadows are made. The goal of all of these activities is to encourage students to be comfortable and confident problem solving on their own and combining drawing and text in their projects.

Second Grade

Second grade students continue to practice their typing skills using the online typing tutor http://www.typing.com. Students are also becoming more comfortable logging in and out of their google accounts. The steps below will help you get to the typing tutor from any home computer.
