How I Use It
I would use this product in my teaching for story retelling. Students can use pictures from their camera roll to create character puppets. They can also select a background for their story. There are some pre-made characters/backgrounds to pick from, but the options are limited. The app is easy to use. Students can move the characters like puppets and record their voices throughout. The final show can be saved in the camera roll.
My Take
I like that this app is easy for students to use independently. I think it's a great teacher tool for story-telling. This is nice for students to use during centers because they do not need much instruction and can create their own shows independently. It also enhances student collaboration and creativity.
