I am completely biased, but 2nd grade is my favorite group in the computer lab. They are starting to become independent on the computer, but are still totally sweet. They are so excited to try new activities, and that makes me excited to teach them. I am really proud of the activities I use with them and I think you will love them too.

What you need in order to use these lesson plans:

– Students will need to log in with the class account username and password every time. You can make the credentials very easy. *New for 2021 and beyond, this now comes with an Auto Login URL that logs students in with one click.

– Laptops are ideal (PC or Chromebooks) because not all of the activities will load correctly from a tablet. I do not recommend buying this if you only have iPads.

– The file for the editable lesson plans and rationale pages is in PowerPoint. You can upload it into your Google Drive to open it in Slides if needed. Everything will transfer.

– There are a handful of YouTube videos to supplement the lessons. If you don’t have access to YouTube you can accomplish the same objective by doing a demonstration yourself.

Each lesson or project includes:

-a rationale page

Question: How does student access work?

Answer: With your purchase you get one class account that all students use to access the lesson pages. Think of this website like a textbook but digital. The username and password’s purpose is to give students access to the textbook. Then from there you (the teacher) still facilitate student progress by letting them know which lesson page to go to and you’ll still collect their finished assignments for assessment.

Question: What platform will the students be using? Are they done in google drive? Like an interactive notebook?

 Answer: All of the digital content is housed on my website. The lesson plans and rationale pages are for the teacher (and administrators, right?) as PowerPoint files, and the website is set up to just click and go for the students to complete the activities. Think of the PPT files like the teacher manual and the website like the student workbook (but digital). Visit it ahead of time at k5technologycurriculum.com to get an idea how it works. You can find several free pages on the Samples dropdown menu. If/when you purchase access, you will create a class username and password to access the grade level pages included for your purchase.

Question: Do these include Google Apps or MS Office?

Answer: Both! Starting in 1st grade there are lessons to teach excel/sheets, word/docs, and PPT/slides.

You can pick and choose which lessons to do with your students. If you have access to Google Apps but not to MS Office, just skip the MS Office lessons and vice versa.

Question: Can I attach the lessons to Google Classroom?

Answer: Some teacher will choose to use Google Classroom as a way to collect student assignments in order to grade them, but there isn’t a way to automatically assign one of my lessons in GC.

Question: Do I have to buy all of the grade levels or can I just buy the one(s) I need?

Answer: Individual grade levels can be purchased and if you decide you need more, it is easy to add additional grade levels at any time. Scroll down to see the purchase options.
