We are proud to announce the first edition of the Eagle Bay News (EBN). Stories are written and overseen by 5th and 6th grade students in the School Newspaper after school club. Thanks to all those who worked so hard to get our first edition live.
Our Eagle Bay 4th, 5th and 6th Graders have been piloting a new web site for keyboarding homework. Kidscantype.com is a great way to get daily keyboarding practice! Keyboarding is an essential computer literacy skill. Being able to sit at a computer and compose an essay, story or other assignment is an important ability. Students need to be able to keyboard quickly and accurately. To get going on keyboarding homework: Go to kidscantype.com (no spaces), click on the Login button, type in the student email-USERNAME@davis.k12.ut.us (also, no spaces), type in the student password (pin number), click on Login, click on Start, HINT --- make sure your caps lock key is OFF while you type.
