What's Happening

Blackhawks Computers Blackhawks
We will work on a variety of skills in all grade levels from typing to coding.  Below is a glimpse into some of the goals for the year.  Since this is the first year for Computers, this will be an ever evolving program.

Blackhawks SEL
In Computers, we will be incorporating some strategies from Conscious Discipline.  Check it out here!

The school also has a new SEL initiative, so we will be doing our part in Computers to check in and give every child a voice.

Blackhawks Kindergarten
Kindergarten students will develop basic computer skills.  This includes things like mouse work, beginning typing, logging in, understanding the icons, and being able to navigate their way to their Google Classroom.

Blackhawks First Grade
First Grade will continue on with the basics trend, but on the next level.  They will work on home row typing, and learning some shortcuts, along with using Google Classroom.

Blackhawks Second Grade
Second Grade will really dive in with typing and Google classroom.  The goal is for them to be confident enough to begin to look away from the keyboard and become more proficient.

Blackhawks Third Grade
Third Graders will become confident with their Google Classroom.  They will also develop more typing skills and learn keyboard shortcuts to make things easier for them.  Finally, they will get the opportunity to do a little design work of their own.

Blackhawks Fourth Grade
Fourth Grade is similar to Third Grade in a lot of their goals.  We will be working on both Chromebooks and desktop computers, so the kids will get a wide range of exposure.  They will also dive deeper into Google beyond simply Classroom.

Blackhawks Fifth Grade
Fifth Grade will be working exclusively on their Chromebooks in class.  We will first focus on getting solid typing skills, and then we will move on to other things like understanding the ins and outs of hardware and software and some coding.

Blackhawks Sixth Grade

Sixth Grade will also be working exclusively on Chromebooks.  They will tackle typing in a proficient manner, design, product understanding, editing, and coding.
