Saint Thomas Catholic School

Technology

Technology provides a variety of learning styles and input.

Students benefit from computer usage by learning basic skills and keyboarding, as well as enjoying programs that enhance their curriculum.

Preschool through 5th grades come into the library for computer class once a week and work on a variety of different skills.

Preschool learns how to properly use the mouse and keyboard with websites such as Sesame Street and Starfall.

K/1 works on math , letter recognition, and spelling skills through websites such as Sesame Street, Starfall, PBS, Knowledge Adventure, and ABCya.

2/3 is taught proper hand usage on the keyboard, how to research certain topics, gather facts online, and fill out research papers.

4/5 is expected to use the keyboard with proper finger placement with minimum looking for keys. They work on reports from homeroom teachers and research papers from topics of their choice. They are also given topics throughout the year to create Powerpoint presentations. As the year progresses, the technology expectations become more challenging.

I enjoy working with each and every student, helping them learn and advance each year.
