  • Keyboard Zoo 2 - Use the shift key to make upper case letters.  They are marked with yellow. In the computer lab they are painted yellow! You will need both hands to press on the letter and shift key at the same time. Try 3 times.

 





PAST WEEKS
 

The devices that students are using make it a challenge to have lessons that all can access. For example, those with ipads don't have a keyboard for keyboarding lessons.  I will include an app that we have used in class along with assignments that can be done cross platform. Students may go to PAST WEEKS if they liked coding or reading books.
