Have you come across the Writing Runway program yet? I attached it to my class blog yesterday and I know that I am going to be using it every day during our language block, as an independent activity and during modelled writing time using the interactive whiteboard. You can type a sentence on to the screen and it will place each word in a grid that allows the children to re- write the sentence by clicking on the words and dragging them on to the aeroplane runway in the correct order. There is a great motivator at the end of the task. if your sentence is correct the plane will take off with great sound effects ( which will become very irritating over time!) so headphones would be in order if you are using it as an independent task in a classroom setting. ICT Games has loads of other fantastic interactive educational games and activities so take the time to have a good look around the main sight by clicking on the back button when you have finished looking at the Writing Runway Program or finding the ICT Games site in my ICT links in the right margin of the blog. I will be very interested to hear how other people are using it.
