 8th Grade

We will review Microsoft word. Using Online Tutorials. We will be using Google Classroom - Docs, sheets and slides.  The students are using Chrombooks for their core subjects that were assigned to them. These Chrome Books stay at school. We are using an online website for typing. The students have a username that I have given them and a password. The link is below (Typing Web). Also Below are some additional links to practice their typing. Practicing at home 10 to 15 minutes a night would be fantastic.

Other software applications: iMovie, SmartNotebook, Kahn Academy, Google Classroom. Their teachers also can check out up to 30 ipads which are located in the computer lab.




Make sure you ask one of your parents before using these sites.
