Handa Sentences

This Clicker Grid set has been created in conjunction with CENMAC and Widgit software, in support of the 'Hello' National Year of Communication, and helps children to write simple sentences about the book ‘Handa’s Surprise’.

On each grid, children write a sentence by selecting the symbol-supported words and phrases.

The set uses Widgit Symbol resources and is based on a Symwriter environment, by Widgit Software. Widgit Symbols, for use with Clicker 5, are available to purchase from Crick Software.

This grid set is based on a SymWriter activity created by Tina Voizey.

The 'Hello' campaign is being run by the Communication Trust, and aims to increase understanding of how important it is for children and young people to develop good communication skills. Details can be found at www.hello.org.uk.

CENMAC is a London based support service offering assessments, reviews and equipment loan to help pupils with a disability access the curriculum using assistive technology.

Widgit is the creator of Widgit Symbols, which follow a schematic structure to help people exchange information and ideas.
