The first app in the giveaway is Kids Stories in English: Little Red Riding Hood (U.S. English version), by Cambridge English Online.
I have FIVE copies of this app which, if you don’t win, you can buy for only $1.99.
This iPad app has been developed based on research results that indicate children’s understanding of the meaning of words and stories measurably increases when they see a storyteller’s face. The app therefore contains a storytelling videoin addition to an illustrated story which can be either read or listened to, flash cards, a word quiz and over 20 teaching tips – activities and ideas for teachers, parents and childcare providers. This app is ideally suited to children aged 3 to 6.

If not, this app acts as a subject prompter to encourage either verbal or written storytelling and is great for children aged 9 and above. There’s now another version of the app, perfect for those Fall nights sitting around a fire, making smores, drinking hot chocolate and terrifying everyone with ghost stories…well, they would be terrifying if you had something to help you get started!
I have one copy of Spooky Story Dice to giveaway and I’ve made the timing of the rafflecopter quite short for this one so that the winner has lots of time to enjoy it before Halloween. If you want to go ahead and buy it, it’s only $1.99.a Rafflecopter giveaway
