Reading and Writing in Year 3 using iPads 2014

This semester the Year 3 class are using the app Kids Journal to record short daily journal entries. The students, filled with motivation and engagement, type their thoughts and recount their activities from the previous or current day.

The app has icons that allow them to depict their mood, the day's weather and take a current photo of themselves.

The Year 3 teacher cleverly integrates this process into the student's English learning program.

RAZ - Kids is now being used widely at Sacred Heart as a supporting reading tool. The variety of text types and the relevant reading levels makes the tool very popular with our students.

As part of their lesson flow the students move to relevant reading on RAZ Kids once they have completed their journal entries.
