1st Graders Learn Microsoft Word Skills

First graders have been learning various Microsoft Word skills. Over the last several weeks, students have learned how to insert text and how to change font styles, sizes, and colors. The objective of the current lesson was for students to locate and insert clip art.

Students in Ms. Shelby's first grade class show off their Microsoft Word documents.

Once students successfully inserted clip art of a pet they have (or would like to have!), they learned how to add a bulleted list. They added ways to take care of pets, which ties into their language arts objective about reading and understaning informational text.

The documents below were created in a 30-minute lesson.
