K-5 Computer Lab Rules
Use these rules to keep your lab running smoothly throughout the year.
You can download the ready to print rules sheets or copy the rules you prefer to use on your own sheets.
I generally tell the children that the rules in the lab are the same rules that their regular teacher uses, but that I have a few of my own to add.
For the younger kids, (kinders) I don't usually go over the long list here, I just use the Computer Lab Rules in the images version.
