Welcome parents/guardians to my 6th grade tech and careers class blog! I update this parent blog on Sunday nights to give you a preview of our class lessons for the coming week. If you ever have any questions about our work, your student's grade or other information, please feel free to call me between 1:20-2 or 3:10-3:30 at our school number: 234-7123. You may also send me an email and I will respond within that same day: resa.hersel@harrison.kyschools.us

I am also the STLP (student tech club) sponsor. Our next meeting will Wednesday, April 18 from 3:15-4:30 and that is our last meeting for the year. Please send a dessert or a bag of chips in with your child that morning. I will provide pizza and drinks for our ending party. Students will need a ride if they attend. Rides should be here by 4:30. We will do a variety of tech activities at the meetings. No previous experience is required to join. Also please note if we have a snow/flood/NTI day on a scheduled meeting day, that meeting will not be made up the next week. We will stick to the schedule.

Week of April 16

We are learning about creating and editing a Google document and how to use the toolbar and menu to help with that. Students will then have 3 assignments to complete this week in which they will be creating Google documents following my instructions.

Students will have 10 minutes of keyboarding practice at the end of some classes to help them increase their speed and accuracy. If they would like to practice at home, they can sign in at this website using their student user names and passwords. They should be able to remember those. LINK

Thanks for stopping by to see what's up in our class this coming week.
