Using a Mouse

I took my entire Kindergarten class to the computer lab today and was surprised at how many children struggled when using a mouse.  Although many of my children have complete access to a computer at home, many are not allowed to use the family computer.  Parents I would like to encourage you to have your child use the computer at home with your supervision as he/she will be asked to use a computer at school more and more as he/she gets older and practice at home can only help.  Another tip would be for you to purchase a smaller mouse that would be a better fit for your child’s small hand.  I have found a website that has games for mouse practice that would be great for your Kindergartner.
