For the iPad


This Powerpoint presentation shows to use Educreations in your classroom. This app is great to use for explanations and works well as an assessment tool.


Please let me know if you would like me to help you set up Dropbox on your school computer so you never have to email yourself or carry round a thumbdrive (and remember to take it with you!)

5 Sentence Challenge

Stage 3 classes can use the 100wc (100 word challenge) site to showcase their students writing each week.

There is a second site called the 5 sentence challenge for children starting their journey.
5SC is a "fortnightly creative writing challenge for children under 16....aimed at the younger end or those children who may struggle with 100 words. The prompts are thematic and the link is open for two weeks giving more time for discussion and posting. The children should create 5 sentences about the theme. These can be as a list of 5 or as a piece of prose."

This may be more suitable for Stage 2 classes. Years 1 and 2 may like to use this in class or it could be used as a G&T activity.
