Becoming Cybersmart with James


 James comes and visits us every Monday to teach us something new/ different on the chromebooks. This week he was teaching us to SMRF (said 'Smurf'). When we have a document that is view only, we need to SMRF it. We have to STOP, MAKE A COPY, RENAME IT, and FILE IT.

We then had a go at telling others how to SMRF a file. We did this by creating a set of instructions.

Another visit with our Buddy Class

We enjoyed reading so much that we decided to have another session in the library.

Our first BUDDY CLASS visit!

Room 22 met their buddy class for 2017.  
We joined Room 1 in the whare pukapuka (library) for some reading together. We got to help Room 1 students and show them how to use the shelf markers when selecting a book to read.

We all had such a great time! 😊
