Ms. Dawn Goshko - 1st-4th Technology Teacher  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to Miss Goshko's Technology Class Website
I am the technology teacher for DJR School. On this page you will find educational websites for you to practice the skills you are learning in school.

Kindergarten will begin the year learning how to use a mouse. They will need to use one hand, be able to control the mouse, left-click, and click-n-drag. We will use a variety of websites to learn how to use the mouse. All the websites listed on my website, which are for Kindergarten, will have a 1 in front of them. Having the 1 in front of the websites name makes the sites stay at the top of the page so they donít have to scroll down and find the sites in ABC order. All of their sites are at the beginning. Then they will be learning basic computer skills using the program, Pixie. They will be learning how to add text, changing the font, color, and size. They will also learn how to add pictures to their work. They can either draw their own pictures or use the stickers provided within the program. They will learn how to open and close a program, or internet window. They will also learn how to print their work.

1st Ė 4th Grade will begin learning to use a new program, called Wixie. Wixie is the web-based version of Pixie. A letter has been sent home with all the students on how to use and log in to use Wixie at home. There is a copy of that letter in the downloads section of my website. If you have trouble with your username or password, please email me so that I may assist you. Wixie will help the students to create projects, while teaching them the basic skills of MS Word and PowerPoint. It also has the capability to add voice recordings, pictures can be taken with the camera on their tablet, and then added as a sticker on their page. All the students have been creating wonderful projects. I am so proud to be your computer teacher!
Later in the year, I will introduce Microsoft Office using those basic skills. The students will be learning MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint this year. They will learn to change the font, color, and size of the text. They will also learn how to add clip art to their word document.

Third and Fourth grade will also use MS Word. They will learn how to change the font, color, size, and effect of the text. They will learn how to move text by using cut, copy, and paste, or by clicking and dragging. Alignment of the text and spacing will also be taught. Along with how to use the tab key.They will learn to add and move clip art to their documents. They will also learn to format their pictures, to be able to drag them anywhere on their page.

All grade levels will be learning basic typing skills using the program Type to Learn 4. Every student will get a username and password to log in to Type to Learn 4. This program can be used here at school and at home. It is a great program to introduce and teach typing skills. Please encourage your child to use TTL4 at home.

The directions on how to download the program at home is on our school webpage. Look for the TTL4 icon on the right hand side of the page and click on it. It will open the directions to download the program. Please encourage your child to practice their typing skills using some of the free websites I have on my webpage. These games will reinforce the typing skills they are learning in TTL4.

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students are learning how to rename, save on, and open a file on their flash drive and in a folder on the school network.

Please see the downloads list to see the skills expected for each grade level.-Grade level checklists.
