This year I was reminded by another teacher (Miss Shaw in Room 4) of a programme I used to use regularly in my classroom. But in the busyness of teaching and learning about new things, tools, modern fads and new technologies, I had completely forgotten about it. However I blew the dust of it and have been using it almost every day.
The programme is called 'Autopilot' it is basically a rote-learning programme with a heavy emphasis on reciting. It is designed to give daily practise in basic word knowledge, numeracy skills, literacy skills and general knowledge eg. colours, days of the week, months of the year...
The idea is that eventually the children are able to run the programme by themselves...., I think we are nearly there, I could very well be out of a job soon! Take a look....Roll-over Mrs Ross, Hannah is the new teacher in Room 3.
