How I Use It
I might use this with young students or students with special needs to focus on story creation or sequencing. I don't see it as much of a teaching tool, but more as a reinforcement tool or free time filler after learning about the Hungry Caterpillar.
My Take
I think that this is like a Tamagotchi tool for students who've read The Hungry Caterpillar. I don't think that it would help to "teach" anything. There was another Hungry Caterpillar app for the same price that looked like a much better teaching tool.
