CLICK TO SCHOOL SUCCESS
In Click to School Success, I guide you step-by-step as you learn how to use an App (Clicker Docs) and a software program (Clicker 5) to help kids develop basic skills such as visual attention while working on higher level skills such as letters. The focus is on developing skills and independence -- so children can "show what they know" while offering YOU the 'tools' to observe and set specific goals to ensure a child can make successful progress at school.
This course is for you if you want to:
- Help a child "show what they know" and learn through technology, even in the earliest grade levels (kindergarten).
- Learn how a program can be set up to work on different skill levels while increasing a child's independence from one grade to the next.
- Learn how to observe, set up strategies and specific goals for the level the child is working at right now.
- Learn how you can use one software and/or app program to help kids learn letters, sight words and develop writing skills -- without having to learn a new program.
- Learn how technology can support kids that are struggling with the physical part of letter formation or writing, and how they can still make progress in reading and writing skills as they continue to develop their printing skills.
- Save time searching for information about how to set up and use programs in a way that is multisensory and meaningful for your child. Customize the program to fit the child's needs.
- Be able to set up and customize various grids that are appropriate for each child and at their level--so that they can experience success and independence with writing.
Come and join me so I can show you how small goals can make a big difference at each skill level -- using one software program and one app!
Click to School Success Course Outline
Click to School Success offers four levels of instruction covering a variety of learning needs.
Each Level consists of instructional videos, handouts, and reflective questions to help you apply what you learn -- and I will be there to provide feedback as you work through your reflective questions online!
You will receive over 19 pages of observations, strategies and specific goals for each skill level! It's all done for you!
You will be offered 'sample paper tools' that you can use to support technology use and eventually offer these paper strategies for follow-up at home.

- In this third Level, you will learn how to create lowercase word banks and add theme pages in Clicker Docs and Clicker 5 to help find words used at certain times of the year or for specific subjects (such as Christmas or pioneer theme pages) so the child can work on class-related material.
- Learn how to increase independence with writing ideas in simple sentences to allow the child to express their own thoughts and ideas.
- Learn how to teach children how to successfully add new words into their word banks.
