This step-by-step lesson guide is perfect for young students. So easy-to-follow and as much as teachers can modify to meet their class's needs, it's just a dream as is for when you need to leave plans for a substitute. My students LOVE the activities ... an all-time favourite is the colouring page activity whereby students create and save their own design (being mindful of closing their shapes) and then their classmates digitally colour them in, add their names, and save - impressive computer skills for grade 1, acquired through the lessons =) Since Paint is available online, even the youngest students can show off their skills at home too.
