In the library, kindergarten students are learning:
May 2013:  We are winding down in library.  Over the next few weeks we will be using our imaginations by performing some reader's theatre with the stories Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Jack and the Bean Stalk. And we will be camping out in the library and reading books!
Fiction  - books that come from someone's imagination, make believe, read for enjoyment
Nonfiction - real information, real pictures, read to learn

In the computer lab, kindergarten students are learning:

May 2013: We will be watching our digital scavenger hunt power point and having fun reviewing all of the fun things we have learned this year in computer lab.  
 A good website for students is:
1.  Fun, with things to do and see
2.  has appropriate words
3.  Doesn't let you talk to people you don't know
Ask your child what the three rules are to stay safe on the internet.
1.  Always ask your parent (or teacher) first
2.  Only talk to people you know
3.  Stick to places that are just right for you
