There are always students who find learning comes less easy to them so this term my focus is on this group of students. The readiness to learn varies from child to child and for some beginning school is such a different environment in which they have no idea how to respond or what is required of them. They prefer to be observers or watchers, not participating for fear of getting things wrong. I looked at my class to see what is holding some of these students back and decided it was time to look at the pace we were working at and the medium they were working in. These students seemed happiest working in a more tactile environment at a much slower pace.
Already they are becoming more confident in both reading and writing and once they have a more confidence "I can" attitude we will begin to work again on the iPad.
