Kindergarten technology lesson plans and activities for the entire school year that will make a great supplement to your technology curriculum. These lesson plans and activities will save you so much time coming up with what to do during your computer lab time. Ideal for a technology teacher or a kindergarten teacher with mandatory lab time. All of the work is done for you!
 
After years teaching in the computer lab, I learned to not be terrified of my kindergarten classes anymore. You probably think that is silly, but 25ish students all using a desktop computer and mouse with only me as the adult in the room had me sweating every time. 


I really struggled with coming up with lesson ideas, until I had a lightbulb moment about 5 and 6 year olds using computers. The conclusion I came to is that Kindergarten students need to become familiar with the computer while learning what they are working on in class. This means lots of mouse practice that incorporates learning letters and number sense. Problem solved!
So, I created these Kindergarten technology lesson plans and activities for the entire school year that will make a great supplement to your technology curriculum. These lesson plans and activities will save you so much time coming up with what to do during your computer lab time. They are ideal for a technology teacher or a kindergarten teacher with mandatory lab time. All of the work is done for you!

What you need in order to use these lesson plans:

  • – 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. Instead check out this resource for Kindergarten.
  • – The file for the editable lesson plans and rationale pages is in Google Slides. You (the teacher) will need to open it from a google account or download it as PowerPoint.
  • – 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

Frequently Asked Questions:

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.
