Computer & PE Class


Mrs. Kaimann

Computer Class:

Keyboarding-We will be focusing on keyboarding (typing) everyday throughout the school year. Kindergarten and first grade will work on becoming familiar with the keyboard and location of letters and basic keys. For the rest of the grades students will practice their keyboarding skills every day for the first 10 minutes of class by using a website called Typing.com.

Applications-Students will be using different applications throughout the year with focus each quarter on a different application. The applications students will spend the most time on are Microsoft Office; Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. Every grade will use these applications to create projects in different ways. Based on the skills students have, I will differentiate their work to help them achieve mastery. The Internet is also full of applications, and we will use different ones throughout the year.

Assignments- Occasionally, I will give assignments that require the Internet or the computer but which don’t go along with a specific project, these assignments will also be graded.

Grades-Students will get a participation grade for every class period with me in the lab. Since I only see the students once a week, it may take all quarter to get through one or two projects (depends on length and difficulty level of project). Their projects will be graded based on the objective for each and the parts required along with the overall completion of the project. Grades 5th through 8th will also take a typing test at the end of every quarter which will be their quarter grade for keyboarding. So, the practice in typing we do every day is very beneficial for their overall grade.

PE Class:

Description: My goal for students in PE class is to learn how to stay healthy by moving their bodies and making good choices. My plan is to start every PE class with a warm-up exercise, introduce an activity, and then end the class with yoga to prepare students to enter back into the classroom. The different activities will involve using team strategies or individual strategies and moving their bodies. A couple times throughout the quarter students will have different health lessons and discussions about how to make good choices to stay healthy.

Grades-Students will get a participation grade everyday they have PE. Sometimes they will have a grade on health lessons that we complete during the quarter. All grades will also be given points for coming prepared to PE, all students must be wearing tennis shoes on their PE day and grades 6-8th must have PE clothes to change into.

Parent Involvement:

Feel free to contact me through school email (kaimannj@allsaints-stpeters.org) or by telephone through the school office. I will also be using a website called Class DoJo that is updated every day when your child is in the Computer Lab or PE. This website is used to show you how well your participated and behaved for the day. I will be sending out letters which explain how to access your account on Class DoJo. I normally do not assign homework, but there are times that I may need to especially if your child is absent. Sometimes, the students will be required to do part of a project at home because of the limited time I have with them at school. Let me know if you have any questions!
