Teacher Review

Kids can learn sight words and early writing skills with This Is My Story (And I'm Sticking To It). As kids choose labeled images to fill in their stories, they see and hear common sight words like "truck" and "cat" and get to practice with simple sentence structure such as "The (blank) said hello to the (blank)." Each of the seven templates has a different theme with a fun background and related vocabulary; however, they all use the same structure with no additional target skills as kids progress. More story options would give the app a boost. This is an engaging app for introducing early readers and writers to story creation.
