Excellence in virtual learning, with resources for parents and educators.
Grade Level Links for Library Instruction:
These sites reflect activities, lessons, and units undertaken during library instruction. Most sites are relevant to more than one grade and have resources for all elementary students.
Coding is a language! Rather, there are many coding languages. Scratch is Ms. Gapp's favorite tool for teaching upper elementary students.
Using a Mouse:
The activities below will help your student develop the fine motor skills necessary to operate a mouse. These can be played using a desktop and external mouse, laptop or Chromebook mousepad. Each mouse picture takes you to a different activity.
My On is an online library of eBooks. Lexia is a literacy curriculum that adapts to your student's ability. Both are accessed via your student's Quick Card. Request a Quick Card for home use from your homeroom teacher of Ms. Gapp. Note: Lexia may not yet be working for the 2021-22 school year. However, My On is up and running!
Typing is a learned activity. We strive to teach students to use all of their fingers when typing, with the goal of beginning to memorize the QWERTY keyboard layout.
