The 3rd graders are starting to send email messages. We talked about how similar electronic communications are to handwritten letters – both have and a greeting, a message, a closing, and a signature. It’s also important to check your spelling and grammar in both.
We also established that 3rd graders will use their school email addresses only to send messages to their teachers right now, and that the privelidge will grow as time goes on. Students are very enthusiastic about using their computers to communicate.
