Rainy Days: A Stella and Sam Adventure
Grade Recommendation: PreK - 2nd
Specific Skill: Listening to a story
For iPad, iPod, or Both: iPad
What a cute little adventure! Students follow Stella and Sam as they entertain themselves on a rainy day. The adventure is fully animated and narrated.
Every so often the adventure pauses to allow students to complete 3 brief, interactive activities:
- Paw Prints
- Autumn Treasures
- Pinecone Race
Four chapters are included; the user can jump to any chapter or activity - they do not have to experience them in order (although it makes more sense to).
This app plays more like a short television program. I wish the words to the adventure were printed on the screen. Nonetheless, it's still fun and young children will love it!
