Excellent spark for narrative writing and describing setting! Thanks!

Great tool for developing oral language - children could open the Secret Door on an iPad, describe the setting to the group in five or six sentences then reveal the picture on the SMARTboard to see how the pictures created in students' heads match Google image.
