Within Clicker Books, we have included examples to show a range of possible activities - you will see Read, Talk, Write, and Illustrate versions.
We have created books for a range of reading stages, including simple books with captions, books with simple sentences, and books with informational text for younger and more advanced readers. Children can listen to the text and can track each word as it is highlighted, or read and record it for themselves.
Any of the books can be edited, so you can, for example, simplify the text if that will suit your students – the new text will automatically be read with no extra set up.
Children listen to the text or record themselves.
These activities are designed for children to make their own oral report or presentation.
Children respond at a range of different levels - for example in the Animals of the Savannah activity they may record a sentence such as This is a giraffe, or they may use the information from the reading book to create a detailed report.
Children record their information to create an oral report.
As they write their own text, children use the keyboard and are offered the full range of Clicker support, including word prediction, vocabulary grids, and speech feedback.
The level of support can be modified to the needs of the children - in the examples, we have included sentence building grids to show how early writers can be given all the words they need, and word bank grids to support writers using the keyboard.
Children can also record their voice and can add or change the illustrations.
Children are offered writing grids at a range of levels.
Children can add illustrations to any of their books – they can take a photo, paint a picture, browse, or add a picture from a picture bank.
There are examples that show how children demonstrate their understanding of the text by adding an appropriate picture.
Children add their own illustrations.
In addition to the examples, find more ready made activities on LearningGrids, our growing library of resources accessible from within the app.
