  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-25

    Please continue to play games on the owlieboo.com site, especially those in the bottom section that focus on "Clicking and Dragging". After watching the students in class struggle with how to hold the mouse and use it correctly - especially clicking and dragging, we spent extra time on owlieboo.com before moving on. Encourage your child to hold the mouse correctly - this takes time, practice, and patience. All of the mouse skills practiced in these games are important for your child to master independently. Allow your child to play for 15-20 minutes. 


  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-18

     Continue playing the games on www.owlieboo.com. Be sure to have your child play games in all three areas so he/she becomes completely familiar with how to use a mouse. Allow your child to play for 15-20 minutes.

     

  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-11

    KINDERGARTEN

    CLICK THE FIRST LINK TO WATCH A WELCOME VIDEO FIRST

    You may be asked to login - if so, I think it is the normal login information that it used for Classlink.

    Thanks!

  • Dear Kindergarten Families,

     

    The games on the owlieboo.com website will give your student practice manipulating the mouse. This will help prepare him/her for later lessons in Computer Class, and with Mrs. Alexander. Your child can play for as long as he/she wishes, but 15-20 minutes is a good start!

    Ms. Williams
