Technology Lab

Students have been working hard in the Computer Lab!  So far they have learned the parts of the computer and have been learning to left click on the mouse.  The current game that they have been playing on the computer challenges them to click on bees and fish and place them in the correct habitats.  Utilizing a mouse can be difficult for some children as it requires fine motor coordination.  Fine motor development involves the wrist, pincer grip, the palm, fingers and the ability to arch the hand.  

Please remember that we have an illness policy in our Parent Handbook.  Essentially it follows the above guidelines.
