EasyTech Pacing Calendar - Kindergarten

The Pacing Calendar provides a suggested order of assignments and timing for utilizing the EasyTech curriculum in your classroom. For planning purposes, each week contains approximately 30 minutes of curriculum delivered through whole group, independent or guided practice implementation models.

Prior to beginning the school year, it is recommended that you create student technology portfolios (digital or print) to provide students a way to share their learning. The portfolio may include EasyTech certificates, reports, and Application Exercise entries and work products. Pictures are a great way to show your students the learning process and can be used at the end of the year for a class slideshow or a technology showcase.

Tips & Suggestions - During this first month, have student helpers "drive" the teacher computer & take over the log in steps with instructions/reminders from other students. Demonstrate how to log out, and have students take turns logging in/out throughout the week. This step will be essential as you move in to independent practice in the coming weeks.

Tips & Suggestions - As you and your students work through the keyboarding unit, create age-appropriate custom guided practices to provide opportunities for practice. If you have a student who presses every key all at once, try using a special band aid around the pointer finger to reinforce 'one finger, one key' at a time. Use your tech buddies during this unit for coaching and proper use of equipment.

Tips & Suggestions - Gradually releasing the responsibility of logging in and interacting with the lessons can go more smoothly by assigning "tech buddies" to coach or assist as needed. The 'teach, not touch' or 'point, not press' approach is an effective way for peer helpers or tech buddies to coach but not take over for students who are struggling.

Tips & Suggestions - Have struggling students pair up with their tech buddies to review/revisit any lessons with a score of less than 90%. Be sure to provide plenty of opportunities for your students to interact with online keyboard games as well as open documents where they can type the alphabet, names, high frequency words, or copied sentences out of story books. Use your imagination, or ask the students what they'd like to type.
