Get ready to let your child’s imagination run wild and get in touch with their inner author! Kiddy Story Space Adventure is a wonderful tool for building storytelling and story writing skills as well as enhancing their vocabulary and just plain having fun! This app serves as the framework that allows them the opportunity to express themselves through word and illustrations by making up their own stories and then recording themselves telling their stories.
You start this story-writing process by either building your own setting your letting the app create a random story setting for you. If you choose to make your own, first you choose a place for your story. There are several fun options including a Strange Planet in Outer Space, the Playground or even the North Pole! Next, you choose an environment for your story. Some of these include a bright sunny day, a night sky or a rainbow. Enter the hero of your story. Choices include children expressing various emotions or doing activities, snowmen, dragons, animals, etc. Next, choose any object to appear in the story like a rocket ship, a soccer ball, or a spider! Then you create your story! All of the options you have selected are combined into one fun scene and it is up to you to create the dialogue to go along with your scene. You can move the various objects around the screen to make the story look the way you want. Once you are ready, hit the record button and record your voice telling your story. You can play it back over and over again and listen to your creations. The app will even give you word suggestions that you can use in your story based on the scene you have created. After you have created so many stories, you earn objects to create a Super Story.
This app is so much fun! My first-grader and I played it together and we spent just as much time giggling as we did creating stories! It is a wonderful tool to use to help kids learn new vocabulary and learn story writing skills that incorporate details and descriptions. In the few times that we have played it, my son has gone from saying “We saw an alien” to “Suddenly, out jumped a bright orange furry alien!” As he watched and listened to me create stories, he began to incorporate more complex sentences into his stories. It was also fun to watch him create and hear him use his imagination to come up with silly dialogue and truly creative storylines to go along with his scenes. Teachers, this would be an amazing tool to use in your classroom to help your students build stronger writing skills. It is so fun for them to hear themselves telling the stories they create as well.
Kiddy Story Space Adventure is a top-notch app with endless possibilities for encouraging creativity and imagination. You and your children will have hours of fun working together to come up with new adventures for your characters or have them work independently and then come share their stories with you. Either way, this app is a guaranteed way to provide hours of fun and education!
