First Grade Integrates Technology Into Math and Language Arts

Mrs. Fuchs’ Friends dove deep into technology this week. They wrote and edited their papers in Google Docs and were able to print them to share. They also used Google Sheets to create addition fact family problems. The most interesting thing they learned was that if you simply enter a “+” sign into Sheets, it creates a formula! They were able to learn what a formula was and that if you enter an apostrophe before the plus sign, Google knows that you want to do the math yourself. They were very excited to learn that Sheets can do math for them, but also how to control the computer and make it do what they want. Way to go, Foxes!
