Story Editor App
By Winning Koala
Age Recommendation 9+ years.
This app is one for the older kids being at a 9+ yrs recommendation. It presents readers with an entertaining story about fairies and zombies, perfect for keeping the older reader interested.
Each page has an error in the grammar where the child must identify what word presents the mistake. The child must then identify this error by touching the incorrect word. When they do so, four word options are presented to choose from. Once the correct word is chosen, the page is read correctly. Children can also click on the “i” button for the application to explain why the answer is correct.
The illustrations are quite charming as too the child’s voice that reads the text. It is also refreshing to see it has an Aussie flavour being set at Coogee Beach.
There are 50 pages in total giving the child a considerable amount to correct. A book for more than just reading, parents and teachers would both find this app a winner.
