Students in my class seem to have a particularly hard time either writing neat enough to read, spelling correctly or keeping up with their thoughts. Although I encourage them to practice making their handwriting neat (either printing or manuscript) I try to offer the choice of using the computer whenever possible.
I am so pleased with the success of the online Jotforms that I created for spelling and reading homework (Speller's Choice and Reading Tic Tac Toe). Not every student is using it BUT I have two students who are doing far more than required just because they can use the computer!
Keep up the great work Isaiah and Jeffrey!
Isaiah was very proud of his efforts and shared his homework with us. He filled out the entire form rather than answering just one question.
