Imagine, if you will, a class of 24 first graders being introduced to 24 laptop computers for the first time. To be honest, I was SCARED TO DEATH! What if they dropped them? What if they got pencil on them? What if they pulled off the keys? What if.....? What if....? What if....?
I thought about maybe waiting until October when the students were a little more familiar with the way things work. Then, I thought..."What the heck? These are smarties! We will jump in with both feet and get them learning." Guess what? I was right (one of those rare times I have to admit). They did AMAZING! Thanks to an awesome computer lab specialist...Mrs. Janett Roberts. She knew just how to explain about holding the computers like a "precious baby". Look at these smart little children...
I just knew they could do it.

We did the first page out of our Math books. Pretty great. Although, I have no idea why the publishers decided to use the number "words" rather than the "symbols" for the first page. I guess they know what they're doing. At least I hope they do.
Sometimes I long for the day when life was a simple as coloring six stars.
