VISION (2014-15 School Year)

Gently ease kindergarteners into the world of technology by making it fun and interesting for them while in a controlled and calm environment. Kinders will have lots of mouse practice while learning about the computer and the internet. Kinders will learn where the keys are on the keyboard while using online alphabetical programs. Kinders will continue to build their technology skills while using online counting, mathematical, science, and reading programs. Finally, kinders will practice logging into Renaissance by themselves. 

Prompt, response, repetition and continuous practice is key!

  • Learn how to open the internet by clicking on the desktop's e icon once + ENTER key -OR- by clicking on the Window key + I key.
  • Learn what a window is and how to open, maximize, and close out of a window.
  • Using a mouse and monitor, click on the buttons, icons or text where the cursor turns into a hand.
  • Learn how to lift the mouse when you run out of counter space.
  • Using the mouse, learn how to hover, how to click, drag and drop, double-click and how to right-click.
  • To move up and down the webpage, learn how to use the mouse and scroll bars on the window, the scroll dial on the mouse, or the Page Up and Page Down keys on the keyboard.
  • Use the End Key to quickly scroll down to the bottom of a webpage and the Home Key to quickly go back up to the top of a webpage.
  • Learn how to refresh a program (F5) if you'd like to start all over again using the F5 key or the refresh icon in the web address window.
  • Learn what (internet window) tabs are and how to open several tabs to conveniently view different sites, as well as closing all tabs.
  • Learn what the compatibility icon does.
  • Unlock a locked computer using the keyboard.
  • Log onto RLI all by yourself!
We will have all year to practice our mousing and keyboarding skills using all of the programs on this web page as we enjoy learning how to navigate our way through the internet! GO TO KINDERGARTEN STUDENT LINKS AFTER COMPLETING THIS WEBPAGE!
