First graders’ computers are up and running. While the process was somewhat taxing on Mrs. Heet, students were eager to begin accessing programs.  Before doing so, we reviewed and practiced computer safety rules.  We found out it is a big responsibility to remember and follow each.   Some of our classroom computer rules include:  only one person may access the computer cabinet at a time, always use two hands, only carry one item at a time, computers must stay on the table, computers must be closed before being carried, websites must accessed through the student links page.  We will  continue to practice and review these rules in the coming weeks.
