Mrs. Brinkley's Kingergarten

Remember how to cut the paper snowflakes? What if you could experiment with various shapes to see how your snowflake would look without cutting the paper? Wow! You could save yourself a lot of time and wasted paper to create that perfect snowflake. That is exactly what the students in Mrs. Brinkley's kindergarten classroom discovered while on the netbooks. Once students logged in with their user names and passwords, and they were  given a choice of activities. Some chose to create snowflakes, some decided to "read along" with the stories, and some viewed videos of ocean animals. One thing everyone did - they had FUN learning. Great day for "netbooking"!
Figuring out how to cut the perfect snowflake is just a few clicks here and there.

Reading along is so relaxing.

So many choices! Now, what to do next!
