Twenty-five Computer Classroom

My classroom will have five round tables with five laptops on each table. The tables will be arranged in a circle with an opening at the front of the room. The opening will be where the projector will be on a table aimed at the front of the room where there will be a projector screen. In the middle of the circle of tables is where my desk will be. I will have a laptop on it as well as the printer. In the back of the room there will be a rolling laptop cart so that I can plug in the laptops at night and lock the cart.
The children will get to use the laptops daily for different things. They will use them for a math program that teaches them adding and subtracting. We can use the computers twice a week for math so that the children can have fun while learning. There will be a program for reading skills and spelling skills. We will have two lessons a week on computer skills so that the students can become familiar with the features available to them on the computers at an early age. We will work on learning how to type, so they can enter in spelling words. They will also be learning about the scientific method in science. We will conduct a few experiments on the computer so they can learn the correct steps of the method through a science program. All the programs will make it easier for the children to learn while having fun.
