Technology/Mrs. Thomas: This week students practiced keyboarding using Typing Master, took a final keyboard timing, completed an End of Year Assessment and then played simulations. Here is my website where students can go to practice keyboarding at home or access a variety of other web links that we use during school - http://protopage.com/portatech#Untitled/4th_grade. Next week will be the last week for Tech class. My webpage will remain active during the summer so your child can go and practice keyboarding anytime or play any of the games anytime.
