    I teach a self-contained class of 23 students w/3 computers. Each morning during "Early Work" time (7:30 - 8:15), I excuse three students from EW and let them go to the computer. I have folders set up on the desktop according to the day of the week. The students know which folder to go to and they work through whatever is in the folder. It has worked well for me. I have their names written on the board along with the EW assignment. They are responsible for going to their EW folder and writing "excused-computer time" for me. That way when I grade EW for the week, I am able to give them credit for the time that they spent on the computer. Included in the folder on the computer is a Math, Language, Spelling, and Reading activity for the students to work through. We use Trophies Reading Series so I always bookmark that site so they will be exposed to the focus skills that I am teaching in Reading and Language for the week. Hope this helps you. It has worked well for me. Even though each student does not get "computer time" each week. They are able to go at least every 8th day, and I try to give them extra computer time during the day when all their work is finished.
