  1. Hey Mrs Francis. I love all the new ideas. They are really fun and creative. It can be hard sometimes but we get along. =)

  2. These chrome book rules are really helpful for people who are unsure of what they can or cannot do. The rules can also keep us safe on the internet and help us have a clean chrome book.

  3. Hi Mrs. Francis,
    I think that most of these rules were pretty obvious but as they always say it’s always best to be safe than sorry. But overall I think that the rules are very sensible and I really hope the students use their spare time reading these rules.


  4. Hey Mrs. Francis,
    The Chromebook rules are important; some of them I didn’t know until now! Some of the Blog rules too! Thanks for the rules Mrs. Francis 😀

  5. I think that having the chromebook rules on the blog is a good idea because we would know how to treat our chromebook correctly.

    I think we should have rules because the rules would help us because if you don’t know what to do e.g you might be accepting all pop-ups that appear that you aren’t supposed to accept.
