This app is great when working on telling narrative stories. The app is structured by the different parts of a story, and explains what part of the story they are working on. You can add or delete scenes at each part of the story to customize the app for the level you are working on. Kids can tell a three part story or much longer.
You start by selecting the part of the story you are going to narrate and picking a scene. After that you scroll through the list of characters on the bottom and select which ones you want to add to your story.
You can adjust the sizes, colors and add and delete characters from the "start animation" screen. When students are animating their scene they move the characters and the legs, arms, wheels ect of the characters move.
After you finish animating your students can pick the kind of music to set the mood for their scene. By sliding the scene up and down to adjust the level of the mood. It's a good way to help kids visualize levels of feelings as well.
