Let’s delve further into some EducationCity content within the English module…
Teleprompter Topic Tool (#2159-#2164)
The Teleprompter Topic Tool helps you engage students in shared reading, fluency building and individual performance activities. The Teleprompter has a very useful built-in text bank and the option to upload your own text, making the tool relevant to your current projects – brilliant!
Sentence Builder (#2095-#2100)
This tool enables you to create a range of sentences, so your students can drag and drop the word boxes in order to construct the sentence. This Topic Tool also reinforces the use of capital letters and full stops, and supports students with learning how to construct full sentences.
Below you’ll find some of our KS1 and KS2 (or your region’s equivalent) ThinkIts, Learn Screens and Activities, to support your students’ reading development.
