Book Review: Third Grade Technology–32 Lessons

Posted by on August 12, 2010

Third Grade Technology: 32 Lessons Every Third Grader Can Accomplish on a ComputerWith the school year about to start, I thought I’d review a series of tech books that might help you in your classroom. This one’s for third grade:

Third Grade Technology: 32 Lessons Every Third Grader Can Accomplish on a Computer

by Structured Learning

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As advertised, it has a year’s-worth of age-appropriate computer training in MS Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, Excel, Google Earth, keyboarding, vocabulary, and computer problem solving. Everything meets and exceeds ISTE, NCLB standards. It provides a time table for the introduction of new skills, that build on each other. Students learn hundreds of computer skills while exploring math, science, literature, writing protocols, grammar, spelling, problem-solving, critical thinking. (See the publisher’s website at structuredlearning.net for free downloads and more details.)

I found it easy to use, straightforward, nonthreatening. I like the entire series.
