Word recognition is essential to being able to read. At Computer Kids, we take reading very seriously and make it a very important component of our curriculum. Ehri (1997) states that being able to read many sight words automatically by sight contributes dramatically to fluent reading and is the best way to unlock the meaning of any text. As children begin to develop a store of sight words, they find learning new sight words easier. As more sight words are acquired, a child’s confidence will grow.
Spring break is here and we have great plans for the kids. We have a lot of activities planned for the kids On Monday, we will be working on computer projects, doing reading competition in Razkids. They need to bring their tablets so we can install software for them On Tuesday, we will be going on field trips.. bowling... Parkgrounds etc On Wednesday we are doing some engineering and software projects... On Thursday we are going on a field trip... Golden Corral etc On Friday it is a movie day...... Lots of fun is guaranteed. For Schoolers, it is 20$ per week extra. For others who are at least 5 years old who want to participate in the programs, it is $15 extra. The fees is for the field trips.
Tomorrow, I will be teaching your child how to make a movie using Microsoft Movie Maker. Kids will be divided into 5 groups and each group will direct and produce a Movie of their choice. They will be engaged all day in the Computer Room working on their project. They will learn the software first and then apply the knowledge to their project. They have six weeks to finish the project. The movies will be graded by a panel of judges and prices will be awarded to the best movie. You should have received a Media Consent Form, please ensure you sign and return it to the office. Without this form your child can not participate. This project is for Age 6 and above. Your kids will learn How To: • Take pictures with a camera • Record a movie with a camera • Upload the files above to a Computer • Open Microsoft Movie Maker • Load the files into the Movie Maker • Add transition and animation • Edit the files • Add Titles, Captions and Credits • Save and publish the Movie
