If the book report or story is too big to fit on the screen, the computer pauses at the bottom of the screen for you to read what is there. Then it erases only the text on the screen (leaving the title information and your name intact), and fills the screen with new text. It keeps doingthis until it comes to the end of the story or report. At the end, it prints the words "THE END," centered on the screen.

Why not change that and make the computer display a certain screenful of text until you press the RETURN button. That way, you can relate how fast the computer jumps to a new screen to the speed of the reader. This would be especially helpful to younger children who still read very slowly. And how about a subroutine that takes the report and stores it on a tape or disk? Your child might spend a long time typing in a report and might want to save sections of it at one time on tape or disk to work on later.
