Common Core State Standards K-5 Technology Skills Scope adn Sequence
(What do we have to learn?)
The Common Core, which guides all instruction in OUSD, does not have a specific section for technology. Instead, technology is integrated throughout the curriculum, appearing in all subject areas. The attached document, adapted from the Fresno County Office of Education Recommended Digital Literacy and Technology Skills to Support the California Common Core, shows what skills should be introduced, practiced and mastered from Kindergarten through 5th grade:

Technology Lesson Plans Overview:
Kindergarten and First grade students concentrate on acquiring beginning technology skills with a strong focus on developing mouse, typing, and word processing skills. Students will learn to change font sizes, styles and colors as well as Insert, size and position clipart, add page borders and print documents.
