Typing a Story
Another new skill Mrs George has taught the children is to type their stories on to their iPad. Using the topic of their cross country training a co constructed sentence was quickly put together. After the children were able to say the sentence they recorded themselves saying it and then set about saying it as they typed. If they couldn't remember the next word, they played the recorded sentence back again. For some it was finding the letters that was a time consuming process, while for others it was remembering what word they needed next, listening to the recording and then typing it in. The recording gave the children independence to be able to complete the task without having to check in with the teacher. They were also able to listen to see if they had correctly sequenced the words in their story.
