Introduction to the Computer: As a perfect introduction for young children getting acquainted with technology, Shelly the Snail begins with a cheerful "Hello" and then explains the different parts of a computer: the monitor, keyboard, keys, mouse, computer and CD-ROM drive. Shelly next describes how to press the left mouse button, demonstrates the difference between a single click and double click, and shows how to place the CD-ROM in the drive.
Interactive Storybook: Engaged by the storybook, children will have an opportunity to use the mouse and keyboard skills learned in the lesson to prompt fun animations and sounds on the pages of the interactive storybook.
Word Typing: Begin to recognize letters and the placement of keys on the keyboard by typing words from Shelly's note pad. Better hurry before time's up! Dot to Dot: Use your new computer skills to reveal these dot-to-dot mysteries-Shelly will think you're amazing! Which One is Different? Show Shelly the Snail which ball is different. Look for missing stripes, different stars or new patterns! Memory Game: How's your memory? Help Shelly the Snail pack her suitcase by following the list she gives you-if you get mixed up, you can start again! Match Game: Can you remember which card has the butterfly or the ladybug? Jacks: Show off your skills by "bouncing" the ball and "picking up" the jacks with single clicks. But Shelly reminds you-don't let the ball fall before the jacks are done!
