Understanding sentences and how they work is a really important part of early literacy.
If you are working with emergent writers, English language
learners, or older children struggling to acquire basic literacy skills,
Clicker Sentences will enable them to produce work they can be proud of
while learning the key skills necessary for independent writing.
with the classroom in mind, Clicker Sentences includes the Sassoon
font, speech feedback, and many other child-friendly features to create
an accessible and engaging environment for students to work in.
"Clicker Sentences is a great tool for early
educational settings and for older children with special needs…if you
are after an inclusive tool that can scaffold early learners to the next
level, then this is a must."
Build sentences the Clicker way
enables you to quickly create sentence building activities on any topic,
tailored specifically to support each student's individual needs. Each
sentence grid contains all the words required to build a sentence.
Students click each word to create the sentence in their document, then
select the arrow key to move on to the next sentence in the set, quickly
building a significant piece of writing.
Encourage self-assessment with realistic speech feedback
Google voices provide students with realistic speech support as they
work, encouraging them to re-read their sentences and check that they
make sense. Children can right-click to listen to any of the words
before they send them into the document, providing an opportunity to
rehearse the sentence before writing it.
Provide additional support with model sentences
so easy to differentiate the support offered in each sentence building
activity, enabling every student to achieve writing success.
As a first step, display the completed sentence as a
model on the grid to copy. Next, add the model in the form of a pop-up –
children can see the sentence, but must close the pop-up before they
can continue. With an auditory model, children must listen carefully
before writing. You can even create a guided-order activity, perfect for
reinforcing left-to-right directionality.
Personalize and motivate with pictures
Adding a picture to
each sentence provides learners with an additional cue. Over 3,500
searchable curriculum pictures are included, and you can also use your
own images or snap photos straight in with the Chromebook camera. The
pictures can even be sent into the document too!
