Help please? What digital tool would I use?

Posting on behalf of:

I have just collected some data and several of my students are tracking ‘below standard’ for writing (end of year 6). After observing their work, undertaking some OTJs and talking with the students, I’ve realised their greatest needs are to develop the following knowledge/skills:

  • Select vocabulary that is appropriate to the topic, register, and purpose (e.g., appropriate vocabulary, descriptive words to create a mental image);

I also want them to develop self-monitoring skills such as:

  • Proofreading to check the spelling, grammar, and punctuation, using appropriate computer-based or print tools.

What apps/software programmes and/or digital tools would you recommend to help my students develop these skills? Can you also suggest how they can do this independently or with each other?

Thanking you in advance...
