If you do New Year activities with students, these CVC Build and Type digital secret picture tiles are sure to be a hit with your younger students. In Google Slides or PowerPoint, students match the letter to the picture, creating a CVC word, and then type the word from each row into the table. So many great skills all practiced in one activity!
Second Grade Activities for January
Students are going to love creating their own Digital Glyph Winter Snowman Scene and you’re going to love all of the technology skills work they are getting. This resource works on so many great technology skills. While students may be familiar with paper and pencil glyph activities, it takes it to a whole new level to do it digitally.
Second grade students work on the skills of making new words (typing), putting the words in ABC order, and pixel art using Timely Tech. These are important skills to do multiple times throughout the year so that students don’t lose their typing abilities.
Third Grade Activities for January
Learning keyboarding can be super boring and tedious for students. This set of 4 Winter Themed text formatting activities aims to bring engagement and a sense of purpose to the practice of typing. Students will also (hopefully) have a sense of pride over the final outcome and an understanding of the learning objective.
Third grade students work on making charts and graphs in spreadsheet software. I have them do the first 3 in this set of 5 lessons.
Fourth Grade Activities for January
As long as 4th graders have already learned multi digit multiplication and long division in class then they are ready to do this digital mystery picture activity in class. Otherwise, wait and do this with 5th grade students.
Fourth graders love to do these text formatting activities and take them to the next level. There are multiple ideas provided for adding challenge like:
•Have students highlight the text with the color instead of changing the font color.
•Have students add a line at the end that says what the shape is.
•Have students add a clip art image that represents the design.
•Have students type a reflection about how the activity went and what they might do differently next time.
Fifth Grade Activities for January
Students love answering questions about themselves. This New Years Memories and Resolutions eBook is always a hit!
5th grade students review coding with Timely Tech. By reviewing the skills several times throughout the year they become really good at it!
