Overview of Grade 1 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.

First Grade is also a time where we are teaching the children about the computer and reinforcing basic skills learned from Kindergarten. Some of the basic skills introduced in First Grade should be:
  • starting up a computer
  • shutting down a computer
