I am Ann Gibson and I am very excited for another wonderful year of Typing Club and Math Reteach. Our kids are working hard to improve their keyboarding skills and math skills. All children in 3rd – 6th grade are working on Typing Club and they need at least 1 hour per week of practice. If your student is practicing at home, please have them go to Provo-City.typingclub.com and log in with their school login which is their first and last initial + 0 + lunch number for their username, and can@123 for their password. Please encourage them to not look at their hands by covering them with a dish towel or cutting them a cardboard box to cover their hands. Remind your students: Don’t look at your hands, use all 10 fingers and never move to the next lesson until you have all 5 stars!
(This is the keyboard cover that fits over our keyboards in class.)
TYPING CLUB RULES:
- Accuracy First
- Look at the screen – not your hands
- Use all 10 fingers
- Posture matters
- Get all 5 stars
- Practice 1 hour per week (they get 1/2 hour in the computer lab each week)
As adults, we know how important it is to be able to use a keyboard correctly. So many jobs depend on this skill. Join with me to give your kids the best possible chance to succeed!
MATH PROGRAMS: (These are some of the programs that teachers are using this year so far.)
