• Each week, this page will be updated with a new assignment for the 5th grade students attending Digital Academy. The activity will be the same as the activity the students coming to see me in class are doing. If you have any questions or problems, please email me at williamsj1@leonschools.net. Thank you!


  • WEEK OF MAY 17-MAY 21

     

    1. Complete any lessons in Learning.com that have not been completed

    (this does not include Lessons #51-53)

    2. Hour of Code


  • WEEK OF MAY 10-MAY 14

     

    1. Compete Lesson #51 - Building Your First Program

    2. Lesson #52 - Codesters in Space

     

    Today you will finish Lesson #51 and Lesson #52 if you did not complete it last week, then move on to Lesson #53. Remember - it is very important to read the steps at the top and do exactly what they say before attempting to make any changes or corrections. Lesson #52 will show you how to move your sprite around. Be sure to read any error messages that pop up.

     

    Some important hints:

    Nouns that tell the stage (background) and sprite (character) should always be in green - they are also always in quotation marks AND parenthesis

    Numbers that tell you location and movement are in blue - they are also always in parenthesis

    After you click the green RUN button, you must then click the blue SUBMIT button. Wait a few seconds, the click the orange NEXT button.

    If you accidentally delete a line of code, there is a reset button towards the bottom that will reset the code to the beginning. 


  • WEEK OF MAY 3-MAY 7

     

    1. Compete Lesson #51 - Building Your First Program

  • WEEK OF APRIL 26-APRIL 30

     

    Lesson #51 - Building Your First Program

     

    This is a different kind of coding activity. As long as you follow the steps exactly as they are written, and read the top of each page carefully, you should do just fine! It is very important to read the steps at the top and do exactly what they say before attempting to make any changes or corrections. I only want you to work on this activity today - do not go on to Lesson #52.

     

    Some important hints:

    Nouns that tell the stage (background) and sprite (character) should always be in green - they are also always in quotation marks AND parenthesis

    Numbers that tell you location and movement are in blue - they are also always in parenthesis

    This looks like a lot of work, but some of these lessons are only 2-3 minutes long, like last week's lessons. If you run out of time, do not worry - you can complete them next week before moving on to the next lessons. If you did not finish last week's lessons (#33-#36), try to complete those first - we have had trouble getting them to open at school, so you may not be able to complete them.

    5. Lesson 15 - Online Communications: Sending Email Messages

     

    You will continue working through the lessons in Learning.com. Remember that you start out each week with Keyboard Adventure (KA) which is the first sign on the path. Once you select this, you choose which of the activities given that you would like to do. Work on KA for 5-10 minutes, then exit out the door in the upper right hand corner.

     

    If you have not finished the lessons from the past weeks (#2-13), start where you left off, and work as far as you can today, up through lesson 15. If you do not get all the way finished with all of the lessons through #15, that is completely fine! You will have plenty of time to catch up! Just work during your Special Area time.

  • WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-18

    1. Keyboard Adventure - 5-10 minutes (see below for details)

    2. Complete Lessons 2-7 from last week (if necessary)

    3. Lesson 8 - Internet Usage: Browsing on the Internet

    4. Lesson 9: Internet Usage: URLs and Websites

    You will continue working through the lessons in Learning.com. Last week, you were assigned lessons 2-7. This week, you will start out with the lesson #1 which is Adventures in Keyboarding (I call it Keyboard Adventure or KA for short). If you were at Canopy Oaks last year and did KA, your progress was saved and you should start where you left off. If you are new, you will complete a short typing assessment first. After that, you can choose from 3 different activities to practice your typing skills. Work on KA for about 5-10 minutes. Then exit out by clicking on the door with the arrow in the upper right hand corner. 

     

    If you have not finished the lessons from last week (#2-7), start where you left off, and work as far as you can today, up through lesson 9. If you do not get all the way finished with all of the lessons through #9, that is completely fine! You will have plenty of time to catch up! Just work during your Special Area time. However, it is important that you do work on these lessons each Wednesday during Computer Special Area time so you do not fall behind.

  • Dear 5th Graders and Families,

    Boys and girls, this week you are starting Learning.com. When you login, you will notice that it looks very different from previous years. Once you get into the actual lessons, you will notice they are very similiar. You will login using your student number as the username, your 5 digit lunch pin as the password, and then type Leon in the bottom box where it says district. A drop down box will appear, and you can then select "Leon County Schools". The first sign on the pathway is Keyboard Adventure (they call it Adventures in Keyboarding). We are not doing that this week. You will complete Lessons #2-7. I know that seems like a lot when you think about the lessons in previous years. However, some of the lessons are short videos (only 1-2 minutes), followed by three questions. These are not graded - you will earn stars for completing the activity. Lesson #4 is the first graded lesson - it is on Online Safety and Cyberbullying. This is the same lesson you did last year in 4th grade. You need to try your best to earn a 70% or higher on this lesson. You have until the end of the year to do this, so no worries. Lesson #7 is the next full lesson - it is on Internet Safety. I do not know how much time Ms. Straughn has given you for special area. If you cannot finish this lesson, no worries - you can finish it next week. If you have any problems or questions, email me at williamsj1@leonschools.net.

    Ms. Williams
