Clicker and Learning Difficulties
Write a Sentence Using a Model
Some children need the support of a model sentence as they begin to write. This helps to build their confidence as they work towards writing their own sentences. With the Quick Grid Sentence Building Wizard it’s easy to make sentence building activities with the appropriate amount of support.
Model sentence always available
A model sentence is provided in the grid. Children can listen to and read the sentence first and then write it using the words in the grid. When your child completes a sentence, they will be able to compare both the look and the sound of their sentence with the model. This simple feature of hearing the sentence read back when the full stop is entered will help them to remember the importance of end punctuation.

Model sentence available in a popup
Once again a model is provided, but this time as a popup. Although the popup can be opened multiple times, it is not possible to write while the popup is open, teaching your child to visualise some or all of the sentence.

Model sentence available as an auditory prompt
Here your child can listen to a sentence (but not see it) before writing and are provided with the words they will need in the Clicker Grid. This helps develop listening skills and encourages them to think about how words look in relation to how they sound.
For some children it can be very useful for them to work through each of these stages of sentence modelling activities as they work towards writing their own sentences.
