Computer Lab

We are a 35-workstation P.C. lab with Dell computers running Windows XP. Our students have one hour a week to visit the lab. 

Kindergarten, first and second graders learn a variety of programs, including math, language and word processing in room 25. 

Third, fourth and fifth graders work on math, language, word processing and typing in room 24.

Clifford Reading: Ideal for a pre-reader or an older child in need of remedial help. Excellent practice with letter sounds, blends, initial and ending sounds, and short words. Some games ask children to match specific sounds with their letters, while others are open-ended. The more a child plays and succeeds, the greater the program's challenges.

Concentration Games: It's practice for hand eye coordination. They are very enjoyable and work on the basic computer skills needed for our word processing and creating programs. Some of these include Toy Story, Match Game, and Pairs.

Word Munchers: This is an effective program designed to build confidence in reading, grammar, and vocabulary skills.  The objective is to move a "muncher" to the squares of a chess like board containing correct answers, and have the child "munch" the answer before being eaten by a Troggle. For younger students the Troggle eating feature can be turned off and they just click on the correct answer.

CategoriesClassification: color, shape, design, class, Grammar: naming, action, and describing words, Phonics: initial / final consonants, vowels, Vocabulary: rhyming works, Sentences: (same as grammar)and Challenge: all of the above.
