StoryIt is a website that doesn’t look amazing with its simple layout and advertisements but has some great resources for the junior primary classroom.
While there are stories to read and print, seasonal resources, printable shapes and more – the resources I’ve found most useful are the word games.
There are about fifteen word games available to play online that involve making sentences, making words, spelling, changing words etc.
In the Wiz Game, the goal is to make as many words as you can from the letter tiles. Get the question mark tile to the bottom and a vocabulary question appears. Select the best meaning of the word and earn extra points.
The Odd One Out: Word Family game involves choosing the word that doesn’t belong.
There are games on the StoryIt site that would be suitable for students in at all levels of primary school.
These games could be used as a lesson introduction or closure on the IWB, with a small focus group or individual students could use the games on classroom computers.
