A different look...

One of my amazing followers sent me pictures of her computer lab after she purchased my bundle. I love seeing how people can take the same resource and create unique designs. A big shout out to Megan. Hopefully her ideas inspire you!

This is a picture of my "Do you have mouse control?" resource and a giant mouse that Megan created. I love this visual reminder for the students.
Do You Have Mouse Control?
What a great way to display the parts of the computer? This was not my idea, but I am happy to share it with you.
Every lab needs a giant keyboard! This is a picture of my Extra Large Keyboard Resource. Megan contacted me and asked if I could design a keyboard that would fit in her space. She wanted it to cover most of this wall. I LOVE the way that Megan decided to display it. She used my Keys to Success posters and used colored stickers to color code the keys. What a great idea.! My keys are printed on colored paper, but I love how visual this is with the hand posters.  I think I will be updating my keyboard this summer to look similar to this one.

 I really like how Megan displayed her Computer Alphabet. It is a little different than your traditional ABC line. The word wall is a great way to display computer terms that the students can use as a reference.
"Save vs. Save As! This is a constant battle in my classroom. One day my students will stop asking me which one to pick. I love the black background with these posters. it makes them stand out!
 Thanks again to Megan for purchasing my products and for sharing her photos with me.

Excel Hidden Pictures

I have finally bundled together some of my Excel Hidden Pictures activities. These activities are great for days before a holiday break or days when you need a quick lesson. I created 10 designs and grouped them into three levels.

Level 1 designs do not require any formatting, so these may be best for your beginners or your younger students. 

Level 2 designs requires cell format changes, but the designs are simple. I included easy to follow instructions on setting up the page.



Level 3 designs also include cell formatting, but the designs are more detailed.


I hope that your kids enjoy these activities as much as mine do. I like to give them the instructions without telling them what the design is. I love listening to them guess as they complete the design. What's great about this activity is that it is fun, but they are learning by navigating through Excel and practicing basic skills. Enjoy!
