I'm linking up with Tara for my Monday Made it and Charity Presson for Manic Monday! I love this new computer planning chart we made at a recent technology workshop I taught. So feel free to read on to see how we created this time on task management tool for the classroom. I hope you absolutely love it and enjoy this awesome FREEBIE!!
The materials I used:
Scotch Thermal Laminator (I inherited this from someone who never used it- Great and worth every penny if you have to laminate centers, task cards, etc) I'm not sure what kind of laminator you have at your school, but ours in thin and eventually falls apart from the sheet. These never will separate, they are great for so many on the spot laminating projects in the classroom.
Sam's and Costco have the laminating sheets in bulk (Which is great)
Scrapbook Paper- Colors of your choice
Cookie Sheets- Dollar Store
First you will want to download the computer document from my TPT store for free and change the document to what you want your computer objectives to say. Add your email, any websites you want and any specific directions for students to access particular webpages and print.
Trim the scrapbook paper to fit inside the laminating pouch.
Trim and back the chart on scrap book paper.
Laminate chart and stop signs.
Tape or hot glue the computer chart on the cookie sheet making sure it goes against the cookie sheet as close as possible. This will help to ensure the magnets don't have extra space in which they have to exert extra strength to connect with the cookie sheet.
Print your stop signs in color or in black and white then color red. These are used when certain websites or assignments are off limits. For example, if students should be working on a particular project, interactive activities might have a stop sign on them.
Laminate and connect a magnet to the stop signs.
Laminate and connect a magnet to the back of the computer #1, #2, #3, etc. Depending on how many classroom computers you have.
Add ribbon and tah-dah!!!
