    I would like to start off the school year with basic Technology lessons to lead into research projects for writing. (I am a new 5th grade teacher this year...I have been teaching 2nd and 3rd grade for 10 years.) I am thinking that I would teach technology in this order:

    1. Parts of the computer, hardware vs. software
    2. Internet Safety, web searching resources
    3. Microsoft Word

    I am not sure how much my students know but I don't think they got alot in 4th grade so I want to start fresh but not bore them.

    Does anyone have some good lesson plans, links, flipcharts, etc related to any of this? (I found some...but more on primary level.)

    Thanks!

    This is not something your Library Media Specialist teaches them?

    We don't have Media Specialists here; teachers do all of this.

    I think I brought my media binder home from school (with a list of great resources); I'm away for a couple of days, but will check when I get home.

    Internet safety is so important. There are some great resources here

    Our library media specialist only get to do technology one week a month which means my students would get 50 minutes of technology a month. I must supplement to get stuff in. Thanks for the link...I can use anything and everything! :)

    Yes!!:thumb:

    This is #1 on my list, because we have students do all their writing on the computer. The biggest challenge is students coming up to me after they've started their paper and say "I lost it!" and have to start over again because they didn't save!!:dizzy:
