My Take

There isn't much to this app, which features six short stories, targeted at children who need assistance navigating social situations. The short, narrated stories feature images of real children describing behavioral expectations in settings such as the grocery store, playground, and doctor's office. If more content were available on this app (i.e. more stories with a wider variety of social settings) through an in-app purchase it could contribute nicely to a school-wide behavior program. A rich variety of similar material is available on the Model Me Kids website, but for a hefty price. In essence, this app is a way to sample the full Model Me Kids program, which might be exactly what you're looking for, but wasn't what I was looking for.

How I Use It

Model Me Kids: Going Places is a concise (but limited) way to provide narrated, visual examples of pro-social behavior in some common public settings. A possible use could be early in the year with my K students to discuss rules and expectations both in and out of school. Pausing between slides can allow for discussion, observation, and guiding questions. This app would be appropriate for both whole and small groups with general education and special needs students alike if the need arose.
