Botswana diary

18th November 2005 at 00:00
Many children at key stage 1 know the charming book Kabo's Diary, in which a little boy goes from South Wales to visit his grandmother in Botswana and sets down an account of his many new experiences. It is now available as an interactive CD-Rom for use on PC or classroom whiteboard.

The story is read aloud - though the narrator's voice can be muted - and the episodes lead into a number of enjoyable linguistic games. These include building words into sentences and playing zoological snap, with the vowels in animals' names erased by footprints.
