Fifth Grade


Whew!  What a big month for the fifth grade Digital Citizens.  As they are preparing to present their Boography, they are learning to save images into their folder on the server, cite their sources and be Responsible with their printing.  Most were shocked to learn that one of our toner cartridges can cost 274.99!!

Knowing this helps them make good decisions about what to print and the purpose of printing.  We only need to print things that we will no longer have access to at a later time. And, when we do print, only choose the smallest portion needed.

Part of being Safe, Responsible and Respectful Digital Citizens.
