This year a new class for our students was technology. In previous years students had never had a dedicated technology "prep"; they would enter with their teacher and do assignments the teacher had requested.
Our little ones loved coming to technology! We would often start lessons that involved learning how to use Microsoft Word and eventually PowerPoint. Examples of some of their work can be found here, here, and here. Preparation periods for teachers were 60 minutes this year. Students did a great job with the assignments but I also wanted them to have some "downtime" in lab, albeit appropriate downtime. To aid in this I created papers with websites that the students were allowed to explore. Some are free, some required me to set up accounts. Each was introduced one at a time and built up throughout lab. Below are the papers. You'll notice that many contain the same sites throughout the three grades but all three are embedded here separately.
