As a reminder, your child should not have to login to use ABCya.com from the Canopy Oaks website. All choices are listed below.

  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 2

     

    This week, students will continue to practice keyboarding skills with the game Alpha Munchies on ABCya.com. The directions to access the game are below. I have a link provided, but the links do not seem to always work correctly. You should never have to login to access the games on ABCya.com. This activity is in 2nd grade, but your student will do just fine! When you first open the game, be sure to choose "Beginner" (it is the green button on top). Then, you will choose a player. There are 9 levels. You start with Level 1 which is the homerow - the row of letters right in the middle of the keyboard. As you move up the levels, you will add letters. As the munchies come down, type the letter on the munchie before it hits the ground and eats the fruit. You can redo any level you wish to get better. Once you complete all 9 levels, you are done! 

    FOLLOW THESE STEPS:

    1. Go to the Canopy Oaks Website - www.leonschools.net/canopyoaks

    2. Click on the Students tab

    3. Click on the first icon - ABCya.com

    4. Click on the blue circle with 2 for 2nd grade

    5. Click the purple Skills button

    6. Look for the Alpha Munchies button in the top row and select.


  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-25

    This week, you will use Typing Rocket, Jr. for continued practice finding the letters on the keyboard. Remember to use only your pointer fingers and only type the letters (the rockets) you can get to. If you cannot get to a letter in time, just let that rocket go past - it will not count against you. Only type the letter one time. Each time you play, try to get more "hits" that the last time - see how high you can get your score! 

    Parents: If the link is not working or asks for a password, the game can be accessed this way -

    Go to the Canopy Oaks website (www.leonschools.net/canopyoaks)

    Click on Students

    Choose ABCya.com (it is the first icon on the page)

    Select 1st Grade (red circle)

    Select Skills (purple button)

    Go all the to the bottom to Typing Rocket, Jr and select

     


  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-18

     For this week's activity, 1st grade will continue to practice finding letters on the keyboard. Last week, the students played Kindergarten Zoo. This week, they will play Cupstacking. As new stacks appear, your student will type the letters as they "light up" and turn white to build the stacks. Once all of the stacks are built, then he/she will take the stacks down, one cup at a time. Have your child play the game several times - the goal is to get faster each time!

    Thanks!

  • Dear 1st Graders and Families,

    Remember, you are only playing Keyboard Zoo this time so you can practice finding the letters on the keyboard. Make sure you use the keyboard to type the letters - do not use the mouse to click the letters on the screen. Choose "Letter Names" first, then "Letter Sounds". Parents, if you have any questions, please email me!

    Ms. Williams
