2nd-3rd Grades

The 2nd-3rd grades curriculum begins the process of moving from learning about the computer to integrating the computer into the student's regular studies. The students will come to see the computer as a tool to enhance their learning, and improve their understanding of the world around them. The 2nd grade continues with their MicroWorlds studies, but now they use the program, combined with the Internet to research and create presentation on a number of topics. These include studies of endangered animals, U.S. States and Presidents. For the 3rd grade the students begin to use the computer for word processing, including typing practice with Type To Learn and independent exercises with Word. As well, the 3rd grade has the most complete integration of their homeroom subjects with Publisher. These include a cookbook, Native American Travel Brochure and Colonial Business cards.
