This k5tech.net Elementary Technology Curriculum includes over 200 lessons and activities for grades K-5 that will save you so much time coming up with what to do in the computer lab.
This is ideal for a technology teacher, media specialist, tech facilitator, or grade level teachers with mandatory lab time. All of the setup work is done for you!
This is for you if:
This curriculum was created over 3 school years when I had nothing for materials for my technology specials. I was spending my nights and weekends scouring Pinterest and Google for ideas because I knew my students deserved engaging lessons even if I had to do everything from scratch.
I found myself exhausted and frustrated and just knew there had to be an easier way. That is when I discovered the magic of having my own class website and screencasting my instructions. I created a modified-flipped-classroom before I even knew that was a thing. Students were working at their own pace and they stopped asking me to repeat instructions. I felt like I had struck gold!
I tested and perfected the activities with them and now I’ve made them available to you!

Printable and editable lesson planning pages and rationale pages where I explain the how and why for each lesson or unit.
The lesson plan pages come in a PowerPoint file that will easily open in Google Slides if you upload it to your drive. It is fully editable in case you need to make modifications, or you can just print the whole file and hand write your notes.
There are several sample lessons you can look at to see how it all works:
As you can see, there is a combination of digital activities built right onto the pages and external links.
Easy access for even your youngest students!
Everything is set up for you!
Directions, screencasts, early finisher activities, everything your students need to be successful with just an intro or demo from you!

Hour of Code
With your purchase you get one class account that all students use to access the lesson pages. Think of this website like a textbook but digital. The username and password’s purpose is to give students access to the textbook. Then from there you (the teacher) still facilitate student progress by letting them know which lesson page to go to and you’ll still collect their finished assignments for assessment.
Both! Starting in 1st grade there are lessons to teach excel/sheets, word/docs, and PPT/slides. Your students will need access for either MS Office programs or Google accounts.
Some teacher will choose to use Google Classroom as a way to collect student assignments in order to grade them, but there isn’t a way to automatically assign one of my lessons in GC.
While it is possible, I don’t recommend it. The whole first quarter of lessons for Kindergarten are on mouse skills and navigating a computer. Completing these lessons on an iPad wouldn’t accomplish the same set of standards.
Individual grade levels can be purchased and if you decide you need more, it is easy to add additional grade levels at any time. The only way to subscribe month by month is to purchase the K-5 bundle. The individual grade levels are all 365 day subscriptions.
Let’s make sure this will be good fit for your students. Click here and use the code TRYK5TECH1 at checkout to get the first 30 days for just $1! After that it is $12 per month or you can switch to the yearly subscription to get 3 months free.
Although most of my resources for sale are meant for one classroom use only, this one has licensing options for school use:
1-5 Users: Purchase one license – Users defined below
6-10 Users: Purchase ONE additional license
11-15 Users: Purchase TWO additional licenses
16-20 Users: Purchase THREE additional licenses
In these instances, “users” means how many “classes of students” these will be used with. If you’re a computer lab teacher and you have four 5th grade classes (for example), the 1-5 users license is perfect for you. If your school has seven 5th grade classes and you’re all going to use these lessons, purchase one license and one additional license. You can add up your total classes of students if you’re buying the K-5 bundle and if it is less than 30, buy one license. If you have more than 30 classes, put a quantity of 2 (or more) in your cart.
If you have questions about licensing, please email me before purchasing. If we find that your IP address is using an unusually high amount of server resources we may ask you to purchase an additional license.
Answer: Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is anything you need me to clarify.
It can be better!
