Word Processing Activities


Stationary

A very useful function of most word processing applications is the ability to create stationary. This means that templates can be created for various uses and stored permanently in the computer.

An obvious example us a letter heading. The letter heading is designed and saved. Each time you want to write a letter this document is opened and the letter written. The letter can be saved under its own title and the original letter heading is still saved in its original form.

Ask the children to design a letter heading for use when they need to write letters to people outside the school. A competition could be held for the best design.
