Here are some websites that we use in school and that can be used at home to extend learning. In addition to these tools, children have their own blog logins and are free to comment of posts on our blogs or on those of our Quadblog schools.
We have recently started to use Accelerated Reader in 5O. All of the children in our class have their own login. Accelerated Reader helps children to practice and improve reading comprehension through the use of quizzes about books that they have read.
Voki is an avatar creation tool. Children can use the tools to change the appearance of the avatar as well as inputting speech through text. These can be posted on our blog through using the HTML tab on the ‘Add new post’ page.
All of the children in 5O have their own Storybird account. The children can complete assignments set by Miss Okell or they can use the images to inspire their own writing. Miss Okell can embed the stories into this blog.
