Overview of Kindergarten Computer Lab Curriculum

Each month has a theme in which all lessons for that month are based. The computer lab instructor also has options inside most lessons to lengthen or shorten the individual lessons where appropriate. You can complete as many lessons as possible within any given month; however, when the month is over, continue onto the next months lessons even if there are lessons from previous months that must be skipped.

As always, please feel welcome to go to http://months.wikispaces.com/August to find activities.

Kindergarten is also a time where we are teaching the children about the computer as some children have never used a computer. Some of the basic skills introduced in Kindergarten should be:

  • parts of the computer
  • using a mouse (left and right clicks, navigating around screen, point and click)
  • keyboard (Enter key, spacebar, backspace)
  • insert a CD
  • open a program
