Fly away with some of the most engaging characters on the Internet! Inspired by the â€œI Can Flyâ€ fabric line for Andover fabrics, I Can Fly is a multi-touch, illustrated, interactive, IOS experience whose characters bounce, fly, hide, dress, and giggle in their dreams, allowing young imaginations to soar while being totally entertained. Most importantly (an adult secret) is that I Can Fly engages kids with enchanting interactivity and charming audio while encouraging voluntary reading. Appropriate for toddler to 7 years LANGUAGE SKILLS: I Can Fly is a terrific introduction to rhythm, rhyming and poetry. â€â€Educators, speech and language therapists and other experts agree that it is imperative for babies and young children to hear the kind of language used in poems and rhymes. â€â€The rhythm of the lines is soothing to a young mind and that is why rhythmic rhymes can help children both relax and sleep. â€â€Rhyming words help children to remember new words. â€â€Rhyming and poetry promote â€œphonemic awareness,â€ as young readers pay attention to the different sounds and syllables that make up words, skills theyâ€™ll need to learn to read later on. â€â€This interactive story encourages listening for modeled fluency. â€â€Reading for practice. PLAY: There is an interactive activity page that allows readers to change the main character's outfits by matching shapes and colors of elements. â€â€Participating in visuospatial activities, such as those that involve shape recognition, are â€œbelieved to play an important role in math performance.â€ (Mazzocco et. al, 2006 pg. 89). â€â€Matching is a particularly important skill for children to develop, as it is an essential pre-reading skill (familylearning.org, 2009) FINE MOTOR SKILLS: The development of fine motor skills is an essential part of early childhood development. â€â€The interactive element of touching and moving the I Can Fly characters, story and game elements for new surprises encourages fine motor skill development. â€â€Promotes good control of the hand muscles that will enable children to master handwriting, creative development and self care activities. STORY READING OPTIONS: I Can Fly promotes independent reading skills outside of the classroom that is both practical and fun. â€â€â€œI can read by myselfâ€ option for strong readers to read the story alone or aloud to willing listeners, or for friends and family to read the story to non-readers. â€â€â€œRead to meâ€ for reading along with narrator to be used as a teaching aid for kids who are learning how to read. â€â€Self, independent reading without narration, is critical to promoting literacy and comprehension. â€â€Kids can practice their reading to improve their reading comprehension and reading fluency anywhere with a simple download and without Internet access. EXTRAS: A pattern for a quilt that is similar to the patchwork featured in the story is available by clicking a link on the last story page! No advertising or hidden fees.
