Here’s my daughter’s King Tut sculpture out of butter and flour and colored icing.
I’m sorry I’ve been doing a horrible job of taking pictures of what we are doing for school. Right now I’m just trying to survive nausea and the 105+ heat. Oh, did you know? I’m expecting baby 6 in February.
Today let me tell you about our computer courses. When I started building my online curriculum, several new “official” courses were born. One was computer. Each year they learn a little more about the internet and about word processing. Then each year they learn different types of programs.
First graders just do internet, word processing and typing.
Second graders add on Paint and Publisher (or similar programs).
Third graders learn Power Point (or similar program). There are free versions of these types of programs.
Fourth graders use Scratch which is computer programming for elementary school children. My boys love it.
Fifth graders make a blog.
Sixth graders learn html.
I’m considering Excel (or similar program) for eighth.
My time it up. My ESL students have arrived. I volunteer and teach some neighbor children English a few times a week. Hope you are having a great week.
