Many of you have had a chance to use our most recent Powered by Clicker 6 Resource – Clicker Foundations for Reading
– which we launched this past spring. As I talked about last month, Clicker Foundations is a fantastic resource for emergent readers, developing their understanding of print concepts, phonological awareness, phonics, and word recognition.
As with other Powered by Clicker 6 resources, Clicker Foundations for Reading comes with comprehensive teaching notes. These are designed to guide you through the learning objectives and suggest how to introduce the activities, as well as providing extension ideas for further work. The notes can be found in the Teacher Information
sections of the resource (and can also be accessed as a PDF from the CD).
Many of the extension ideas outlined in the teaching notes suggest the use of pictures and words or phrases that the children have met in the activities. To help make it easy to find and print these, we’ve added them to special Resources for Printing
menus (found within the Teacher Information
sections). To print, simply click the Print
icon on the screen and choose your print options. Of course, you can also print out any of the activities as they appear onscreen – as a record of the completed work or for paper-based activities away from the computer.
Be sure to check out our Clicker Foundations for Reading web page if you want to find out more about this fantastic series. And don’t forget, you can also print out any of our Clicker 6 LearningGrids
sets to make games or activities away from the computer or as a record of achievement.
