Find Out & Write About Series - OneSchool Site LicenseItem #: CRK006SL
Publisher: Crick Software
Grade Level: K-8
Platform: Mac / Win
The unique Find Out & Write About series is a factual, curriculum-based series of CD-ROMs that is designed to support young children who are learning to find out information, then write about it.
Find Out & Write About is ideal for reinforcing existing teaching methods. It is the winner of a BETT software award, (the "Oscars" of the British Educational Software Industry, voted for by teachers).
A Find Out & Write About CD-ROM contains an interactive talking book of non-fiction text. Children can read the text or click the 'listen' button to hear it spoken. Children can also click on a word with the right-hand mouse button to hear it.
Each page of the book contains a link to a Clicker writing grid that relates directly to that page, so children can write about the information they have just learned. Children write by clicking on a word with the left-hand mouse button. Words are color-coded to help writers compose sentences successfully.
Emergent, struggling and fluent readers can all use the resources, as the information is provided at three differentiated levels. At level 1 for example, students are given short sentences, which they can choose to have read to them. The writing grids, relating directly to each page, enable students to work with sentence beginnings and endings. By Level 3, there is flowing in-depth information and the writing grid enables the student to interpret and respond to the text using the grid to scaffold their writing.
