Mrs. Thomas: This week students worked on their keyboarding skills and completed a Fall Tech Assessment. This assessment just shows me what students remember. Any time students want to practice their keyboarding or any skills we do during technology they can access my webpage at http://protopage.com/portatech#Untitled/5th_grade. Next week we will be keyboarding and reviewing some common troubleshooting issues, technology vocabulary and talking about short keys.
