Purpose and Overview:

The purpose of this lesson is for primary grade students to use grade-appropriate technology;
use vocabulary related to technology; understand simple features of the computer operating
system; input text, use grade-appropriate keyboarding techniques; and produce a grade-
appropriate, simple finished document using word processing.



Instructional Activity:

Students will be able to recognize letters in their names; use word processing to keyboard
their names; keyboard the letter in correct order; and begin their name with a capital letter.
As students complete the activities, feedback should be given to students to help them feel
more comfortable using computers.
   1. Students will keyboard & print their name card to be used on the Kindergarten Class
      Name Chart. The new FableVision program, “Stationery Studio,” can be used to
      enable students to create dotted-letter name cards/to trace over with wipe-off markers.
      Many borders are also available to match themes, seasons, etc.

   2. Students play the “I Know My Name” game: Teacher holds up a name card (made by
      the student using word processing/laminated/velcro on back), student recognizes
      name, and places name card on Class Name Chart.

   3. Students take turns taking their name card from the Class Name Chart to the
      computer to practice keyboarding their name on the computer

   4. Teacher prints out a name paper for each student, (after student checks name rubric)
      to practice writing name each night at home.

A new FableVision software program, “Stationery Studio,” can also be used by students to
create name cards/sheets and dotted-letter name sheets. “Stationery Studio” makes it easy
for students to create themed pages, shape books, etc.
