I'm concerned that our kids are not being taught enough in our private school. We have a 7th and 4th grader. They used to have a weekly computer special, but abruptly ended it in the middle of the year last year. They were supposed to 'integrate' the computer learning into the core classes by doing projects on the computer etc. My kids have not had any keyboarding skills taught, no Excel, a little Power Point, and almost nothing else. My 4th grader's computer work is essentially playing online math games which she could do at home. My 7th grader does not know Excel, Publisher, etc..and has a small amount of experience with Pwr. Point and Word He has never been taught keyboarding. They once started keyboarding back when he was in 3rd grade, but never followed through and it just disappeared. I am concerned he will be way behind for high school.
What skills are your kids learning in elementary through middle school? What should we expect to be taught in these grades?
