Grades 3-5: Learn to type!
As you know, students in grades 3-5 will be tested on the computer with the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) in this spring. Some answers will need to be TYPED in as sentences or paragraphs. To help students become more "keyboard savvy" I will be working with them to learn more about the keyboard so time is not lost on "hunting and pecking" during timed tests.
Students will need to practice this skill at HOME and at school. Please use the FREE resources we are giving you here so your student becomes more test-ready for GMAS. Here are some fun sites and games to help your child practice this very important skill:
