The impressive talents of a narrator and an artist have been leveraged. These talents were combined with the animation to create an awesome final app – “Ready Hen.” Similar apps focus their animation on the background art. Apps developed at mycomputerbooks.com won’t do this. Instead, animation will focus on words and syllables.
image recordings Step back from the pages of the story for awhile and think about what is going on. Then, add your own images and attach recordings to them. These recordings might play on character conflicts in the story, build intrigue by creating your own subplots, or maybe they could just be fun thoughts.
One way to get reluctant readers to listen and learn is through song and dance. Students who may not connect with a book just might connect to a catchy toon. The Ready Hen app has adapted two catchy 1920’s tunes to sing and dance to. One is “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue” and the other is “Yes, Sir! That’s My Baby!”
The classic story of the Little Red Hen tells a tale with an important moral. The tale is of a hard working hen and some lazy farm animals. It teaches the rewards of working hard and helping others. This version of the story tells another may be more valuable lesson. May be the Little Red Hen caused some conflict by being a little bossy in her manner; may be she wasn’t so nice to the other farm animals. A children’s group discussion towards the end of the app talks through this conflict.
