Keeping your child safe online is my first priority. I carefully and personally look at each thing that I put on Tunaruna. I do everything within my power to keep your child safe. Sometimes, students may be away from Tunaruna and they need to have the skills to recognize danger and how to avoid possible problems. This series of lessons is designed to help your child recognize potential online issues and understand how to handle a problem. Take a moment to review the materials on this page to understand the vocabulary and problem-solving strategies we learned.

Pixie is an application that allows students to create beautiful pictures. We will share these pictures on our school Web site.

Programming is becoming as essential to 21st century skills as read, writing and arithmetic. During this unit, we will be investigating Kodu. Kodu is a programming software aimed a young children to help them design and create games. This is a free porduct and there is a link to the software on the second grade student page. You can also purchase Kodu for X-box for $5.00. Kodu is fun and makes children think logically and solve problems. This is a highly engaging and fun way to introduce object oriented programming. This is also one of my favorite things to teach.

Digital citizenship does not only involve being safe on the internet. It means recognizing that you are a part of a wider community and you are responsible for your actions when no one is looking. In a sence, we are asking our children to act as superheroes when they are are the internet. We are asking them to behave maturely and speak kindly while remembering to always be vigalant for possible dangers. It is a lot to ask of someone not even 11; but to prepare our children for the 21 century, ask we must. 

To meet this lofty goal, we will be researching a major digital citizenship and using Google Sites to create a Web sites. These sites will only be viewable through the redclayschools.com domain. If you would like to view your student's work, have them sign on.
