Mrs. Barker: Social Studies and Keyboarding 2018/2019

 
 
 
Social Studies:  I was out on Thursday and Friday with the terrible flu that is going around.  For this reason I am pushing the Quest back to Thursday for "A" day students and Friday for "B" day students.  We are reviewing on Monday and Tuesday.  The Quest will be open book.
 
Keyboarding:  We are continuing to use typingclub.com.  This program allows students to work at their own pace and continue to become more confident in thier typing skills.
