Created by: Marji Roy, Ashford School
will demonstrate sorting by even and odd up to 10 as they learn kid pix tools.
lesson combines math sorting skills with technology to create unique solutions
for each student. The stamping, copying and moving techniques used are
excellent for building mouse coordination skills for beginning users.
Demonstrate the technique and tools to the class using the projector then let
the students create their own file as you give support.
Have a list of student phone numbers
printed out for students that may not know their phone number.
• Create a document using Kid Pix
• Develop eye-hand-mouse coordination by using various Kid
• Learn about Copy and Paste in computer work.
• Demonstrate an understanding of even and odd numbers using
Do you know your phone number and can you enter it?
Can you identify which numbers are even and odd and can you
sort them into appropriate categories using the tools in Kid Pix.
In the Small Children Mode of Kid Pix students will use the
stamping tool to enter their name, and telephone number. They will duplicate
their telephone number and then use the Grab tool to sort all digits into even
or odd categories.
Students should know
their telephone number and how to spell their name or be provide with
that information on a piece of paper to work from. This is a beginning Kid Pix lesson so it can be used to
teach a variety of Kid Pix including:
