  • The kindergarten focus is to become keyboard, computer part and interface aware. Currently all kindergarten students are working on their login and passwords. Most are independent at this point. Some may need extra help since this Thursday is their first time back in the lab since spring break.
  • Students in kindergarten are aware of our Shared-time Wikispaces web site. Some have started going to the web site on their own. All of them can click on kindergarten and start an activity semi-independently.
  • No PBS Kids this week. Go to http://www.abcya.com.
