Resources for Scribing

A large number of Downloadable resources are available on the Describe CD ROM available from Longford Libary 04333 41124.
Below are a new selection of downloadable resources for Scribing. All have been tried and tested with a wide age range, 5 to 12+. They can be used both for One-to-one and Peer-group Scribing.
Each "Story Inspiration" has an introduction to help the facilitator to begin the Scribing session. Many have simple extension activities.
