Parish 2nd Grade Curriculum
How Do I Use These
MS Word Templates with my students?
The purpose of a pre made template is a time saver. The font is set for them. The students can ONLY TYPE in the GRAY SHADED AREAS and no where else. (NOTE: The gray area will NOT show on the printed copies.
3. The best practice is to have the students open the templates and immediately then have them save it. Teach them to open the template and go to "save as" FIRST. This eliminates each child possibly saving over someone else's document.
4. Once saved with their name or initials, then teach the students to find their document on the desktop (or in the user folder) and then re-open their document. It is THEN they will type their paragraphs. If they saved their document correctly, then when they "close the MS Template" it should ask "Do you want to save this document?". The students will learn to click "yes".
****QUICK TIP if you
are in a hurry. You can open the document and go to "Save As" and
save the document with the child's name/initials and brief extension.
