I'm Mrs. Chaskey, a.k.a. "The Computer Lab Lady". This is my 7th year at Webster and my 14th year as a Computer Lab EA in WSD3. We cover quite a variety of things in the lab. I've set up links to some of the frequently used sites so your students can explore their favorite sites to their hearts content. I hope you and your students enjoy exploring these sites after school and over the school breaks.
Cool Sites to Explore Over Spring Break

The following link will connect you to the CMAS practice. We will be going over it during computer lab time, but there are a lot of elements involved in taking this test, i.e. drop & drag, highlighting items, and various tools. It would be wonderful if your student could further familiarize themselves with the test, so they would be more relaxed and confident during the actual test taking in the Spring.
