  • Clicker Books Review

    Clicker Books has just been reviewed by the Educational App Store.  Along with Clicker Sentences and Clicker Docs, it has received a five star review.  Very few apps receive five stars, so we are very excited to see this!

    “This is an app that teachers will love to teach with and pupils will love learning from. It can also be used in the home with the help of parents.  Right from the start, the app is very easy and intuitive to use as there are a series of examples and “how to” tools that help with a quick learning of the navigation and usage of the app.”

    Visit the Educational App Store to read the review in full.

  • Clicker Books

    Have you had a chance to see our latest app – Clicker Books? It is a great way for you and your students to make onscreen books. It is so easy to use and it includes all of the built-in writing support features that you would expect from Crick Software – speech, word prediction, word grids, and more.

    The curriculum team has been busy building lots of reading, writing, and talking books for LearningGrids. There are resources for you to use with your students to cover a range of topics including animals, colors, and numbersOwl Life Cycle - Read uses new photo-realistic illustrations to create an engaging informational text for older students. Younger students can read more about Rosie the dog with Rosie Likes or write about recess with At the Playground – Write.

    We have also recently added some seasonal Clicker Books sets. All about Fall – Talk is designed for students to record information about events and changes associated with fall. With Thanksgiving Traditions – Read, students find out about a group of children and their activities on Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Traditions – Write provides a framework for students to write about their own Thanksgiving activities. With the “Different when rotated” feature in Clicker Books, we make books look great in both landscape and portrait views - your students can use Clicker Books in the way that is most comfortable for them.

    And remember - you can open LearningGrids directly from Clicker Books, making it so easy to access all of the new sets.
