I find that younger children tend to focus better with recorded books as opposed to being read out loud by the teacher. This app would be a great way to draw children into reading more. It also is a great example of fluency for children. Plus, it's interactive so it helps the child be more involved in what he or she is learning.

Cause and effect, chose one of the train carriages then  press on the white screen. Pressing on white produces a new noisy object, pressing on the object removes it. Close down and choose another carriage for another game. child can't leave the game that's set up or make amess of anything.

There are other apps like this that I have experienced, but I feel like this would be beneficial for children with autism or perhaps children who have slp issues.

Kelly Bryant's curator insight, December 19, 2013 5:28 PM

Love this! This would be an easy way for children to create their own plays, especially my little guys! We have iPads and touch screen computers in our computer lab so, I think that the navigation of this app would be easy and with minimal teach involvement.

This seems really cool, so sad that it's not free. It makes me wonder if there is a different program similar to this that I could get for free. This would be a great alternative or motivator for those who are not as interested in writing/pre-writing and reading activities. This could be paired with the puppet and the interactive reader map!

Casey Smith's curator insight, March 8, 2013 7:29 PM

I Can Animate is a fantastic resource that allows students to work with others to organise and create ideas in the form of text, audio and images (Australian Curriculum, 2013). This program also allows students to explore and use digital systems (software) for classroom needs as part of the Australian Curriculum (Australian Curriculum, 2013). Fantastic resource to use within the English Classroom for storytelling or recounts.
