StoryBuilder App

Once upon a time … kids relied solely on teacher feedback and repetition to finally master the art of writing paragraphs. With StoryBuilder, the past is history! In this simple, intuitive app, budding authors are guided through the process of creating a tale of their own. Customization features such as voice recording, color-coding and story introduction reinforcement guide children through open-ended questions to help them tell a story. Stringing together these snippets of narrative allows little writers to understand how a paragraph—and later, a story—is formed. Reinforcing story elements such as introduction, conflict, climax and resolution, this app’s the perfect addition to any fifth grader’s interactive library. (Mobile Education Store, $7.99)
