Timetable 3 students a day to do the 'Before School' Activity'.

They click on the link, take a screen capture (Camera click) with whatever IWB software you are using.

All 3 present their pages to the class as a Oral Language activity. They report to the class what they have found out and then they use what they have capturedwith the current teaching focus i.e. What are key words? What is the main idea? Circle all the conjunctions etc.

Kiwikids News is a great link for younger children. Sometimes when we go to our National newspaper headlines there could be some inappropriate stories that we don't want to talk about with our students. Kiwikids filters that all out. Here is an example of a Before school activity with a Kiwikids link.
