This all sounds so wonderful. I am a kindergarten teacher and I take my kids to our computer lab each week. My kids love using computers. However, at my school we a computer lab but no computer lab teacher so it is all left up to me. I have 22 students with no aid so I send more time walking to the lab turning on all the computers and signing everyone in. It would be so awesome to have laptops in our classroom. My favorite website to use with my class is starfall.com .
Thanks for your comment. With budget cuts those types of extra teaching positions are going away all over. Have you tried having your students sign in? I have cards for all of my kids with their username and passwrod on it. The first time we go into the lab or used our laptops we practiced this. Now most of my students don't even need their card anymore. It really helps. Starfall.com is a favorite of mine too. Take a look at Scholastic.com for some games s well as my favorite site: http://www.internet4classrooms.com/month2month.htm
