Using seasonal or topical themes can be a fun way to reinforce important literacy objectives.
The Clicker Connect set Christmas Card Message, for example, reinforces early letter writing formats and conventions, helping children to structure a message insert for a Christmas card. Each grid focuses on a different section of the text, including an opening, a seasonal message and a closing phrase.
The content can be personalised to your own requirements – simply shift-click in a cell on any grid and type your new content. And of course, pupils aren’t limited to the ideas on the grids – more independent writers can use the keyboard to add their own personal greetings. And why not get children to include their own paintings too, for a truly personal Christmas message!
There are so many ways to deliver key curriculum objectives through a seasonal or topical theme – find these and many more on LearningGrids.
