Zawadi Students Learn Documents
Today, my story comes from a grade 5 boy called Bowen. Since word processing was introduced, he has been really into it. Bowen likes documents more than other specialties.
He has been practicing bolding and editing words since the first day. At first,it was a bit challenging for him. He was really figuring out how at the end he can have his own written document.
So now, during breaks and lunch hours, he comes to the lab to work on a new project: a notice to other students about the environment. Bowen asks for my help every time. His aim was to make sure that he wrote the notice on the computer.
His classmates weren’t sure what to use word documents for. Some were just writing their names and others were typing the names of their friends and school. Bowen was the first student to think of how to use word documents.
During his 35 minute class on Wednesday he finished his notice. The rest of the class were asking him where he got the idea. He told them that some might write compositions and others might write recipes. They were happy because now they had ideas about how to use word documents.
I am confident that we have a typist, script writer, speech writer in the making.
