Howdy friends! I hope you are enjoying my 31 Days of Kindergarten series! It’s been a little more challenging than I thought to get all of these posts together, but I have been getting positive feedback from so many teachers, that I plan on giving you more. 🙂 Today is all about the Computer Station in the Kindergarten Classroom.

Today I am talking strictly about computers, not technology. I also have Ipads and Kindles in my room, but I refer to that as technology…I know that doesn’t make sense to some of you, but that is how I run it and call it in my classroom. I am lucky enough to have 5 desktops in my classroom. I realize for some of you that is fabulous and to others that is kind of sad. Hopefully you have at least one or two computers in your classroom and can create a designated computer station in your classroom!

What You Need for this Station

What to Teach Your Students About This Station

What Students Do At This Station

Computer Station Options

This is just a sampling of things that you can do at this station and a few websites to utilize. You should find what works well for your comfort level and works well with your students. Again, do what your administration requires…first and foremost. Ultimately, teach rules and procedures and let them practice.  Another TIP is to make 1-2 students your computer station experts and should any student have an issue while utilizing this station, they can ask those experts. This has worked well for my students and I have had very few issues with this station. What programs or sites do YOU use in your classroom? Leave a comment below, so I can add it to the list! 🙂

  1. Great idea, great blog! I fully support this kind of learning. It is fun, interesting, new. Kids will love it!
    We are aware that we live in the era of computers. That’s why it’s very important to teach them to use a computer. Otherwise, they will be illiterate. Why is that so hard to understand?

    1. Hi Nicole, thank you for writing and sharing this idea. I am about to set up a computer station at my kindy but not sure the content and purpose for the children.
      Really love your idea. Thanks.
