Frog's Princess is based on the fairy tale first published as The Frog King & Iron Henry by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in 1810.
This story app will be available on Apple and Android phones and tablets as well as Apple and Windows PCs by Christmas 2018 if the Kickstarter ending October 30, 2018, is successful.
There are no branching story paths and students cannot choose their own adventure. Instead, students customize their characters and choose from out of ten different fully voiced dialogues every time the prince and princess speak. They design the hero they want to be.
The princess has been taught that one day her prince will come. She starts off calling for help, but ends up saving the kingdom herself. The prince starts off as a show-off hiding insecurity, and ends up with the self-confidence to heal the kingdom and Emma.
Students tend to read ahead of the voiced dialogue, improving reading fluency.
Teaching opportunities are strongest for:
English language exercises
Structure and archetypes in fairy tales
Insight into motivation of other people
Reading fluency for slow readers
