Hi there Fourth Graders and Families!
Welcome back to the computer lab! I'm so glad to be back in here with you.
This year, we'll be coming to the lab every week and your teachers and I will be working to get things going in the lab that go along with what you are doing in class. I'm very excited and hope that you are too!
These pages will help you install Big Brainz on your home computer so your student will be able to continue to play the game we have been using in the computer lab. Please do not take the Post Test at home. We're making a big deal out of it at school.
The biggest thing to remember if your student wants to continue with the game they have started is that you MUST pretend that you are a school - not a home. This document has screen shots with all the instructions to get you going at home.
If you have any questions at all, PLEASE feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or problems. I'll help you in any way I can.
