Microsoft Office for Kids

Course Description:

STUDENTS LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF USING A COMPUTER! Apps, file creation, file management, file storage, printing & more! These are the basics before learning to code :)


Kids will learn Microsoft Office & Windows Applications:

  • Word (word processing)

  • Excel (spreadsheets)

  • PowerPoint (slide show presentations)

  • Publisher (newsletters, letterhead, greeting cards, etc.)

  • Microsoft Paint

  • Microsoft Photos

In a fun and creative workshop-style class, each week we will study a new topic and create a take-home project for their computer notebook. By the end of the year, your child will have completed 33 projects of which to be proud: letter, envelope, address label, book report, greeting card, PowerPoint presentation, a reading log and more! They will also learn how a computer is made. This is a great class to introduce kids to the usefulness of computers beyond games and email, and prepare them for a high school level Computer Applications course.


Homework: 1 hour per week
