How I Use It
I worked with the guidance counselor when she worked with PreK-1 graders. This app helps students problem solve frustrations. There are 5 lessons. The students said the following, "I really like how the monster changes color." What the student was referring to was that the monster calms down when the student touches the visual on the ipad. Another student said, "I like the choices you get to help the monster."
My Take
This is good for app for a one day lesson. Other then outside conversation there is not much more to work on after the five lessons. However the 5 lessons are well constructed and do demonstrate ways for students to calm down.
