You’re the storyteller! In this beautifully animated, wordless story, the child watches each scene and can then record and/or write their very own narration! This is the HOME version. It is for a single user only.
In this delightful story, a boy brings home a stray dog and attempts to hide it from his mother. Using body language, facial expressions, and carefully selected sound effects, the story unfolds and we find out why this story is called “The Surprise!”
There are eight chapters in this story. Each chapter’s animation clips runs an average of 15 seconds, allowing the child to describe and retell the story in small increments. The user may replay the entire narrated story from beginning to end via the Table of Contents. You can also watch the original story with or without music accompaniment, email your story including the voice file, or print it out!
bspThere are “Challenge Words” provided for each chapter. These are optional and for more advanced language learners who want to try and put them into their narration. The “Questions” bone provides three questions for each chapter. Answers and suggestions for both of these are available in the Information page.
This is the HOME version. Only one user’s voice file and one written narration is kept in the program. When a new recording or writing is provided, it erases whatever was previously recorded or written. (The Professional Version keeps the voice/narration files for up to 30 users)
Aside from being just plain FUN, this app lends itself well to a host of educational and therapeutic possibilities: practice with articulation, fluency, syntax development, social cognitive skills including perspective-taking and body language/facial expression interpretation, and much more!
Developed by noted speech-language pathologist and author of Childhood Speech, Language & Listening Problems: What Every Parent Should Know, Patti Hamaguchi, M.A., CCC-SLP.
