In Grade 1, students practice mouse and navigation skills. The activities focus on patterns, math, language arts, science, music, and creativity. Below are links to some of our favorite activities. Your children will have fun showing you what they do in the computer lab.

We also enjoy these activities that are not on the Internet.
