15 Word Processing modules for the Intermediate skills. Most appropriate for students in grades 3-5 or students who have had an introduction to Word Processing. For each skill, there are 2 templates. 1 will open in MS Word, and 1 will open in Google Docs. To use the Google Docs version, your students will need to have Google accounts. The tasks for the assignment are the same whether students are using Word or Docs.
These projects were made out of a desire to guide students to eventually work independently in software programs. They are design to build technology literacy through repetition and engaging project prompts.
- Teacher guide with How To’s, Vocabulary, and Rubric
- Student PDF with links to the learning modules
Each Module includes:

I have used these with my 4th-6th grade students during distance learning. They are great to help with teaching formatting and other text/font features.

This was a great activity to help my third and fourth graders get better using Google Docs. I started it a few weeks before we went out for Covid. So we didn’t get to finish it but they were enjoying the parts that we did get through. Thanks for another great resource!

Brittany always does a great job with all products. This one really helped my student get a better understanding of Word Processing. I really appreciated that it was Word and Google.

My upper elementary students loved these self-paced lessons. They teach useful skills and the students had fun working through them.

This is such a time saver for teachers! Students do not get a technology class anymore so they were so excited to learn how to use these different tools
