  5. 5. Microsoft Word Review • This was a wonderful exercise for the learners, particularly in Life Skills where the children were given an opportunity for creative thinking. They discussed, negotiated and gathered information using a real newspaper advertisement as well as applying their Numeracy skills. • They were motivated and excited about planning a shopping list. In fact, a few parents have said that since the project, they’ve been offered by the children to plan their home and holiday lists. • I used the project to assess the level of their ICT and other skills.
