CWILL members Tiffany Stone, Lori Sherritt-Fleming and Scot Ritchie are serving up stories that are sparking imaginations internationally in the new app series produced by GAPC Entertainment for the Council of Ontario Directors of Education (CODE).
MATH STORYTIME is an engaging interactive storybook app for children ages 5 to 7, and beyond. Each wonderfully illustrated story features a unique take on a math theme, and allows users to choose to read themselves, be read to or record their own voice! Parents and caregivers can also engage their children in fun activities and ‘math talk’ through discussion bubbles that extend the learning within each story. All stories have been produced in French and English.
“This was a really fun project to work on,” says Sherritt-Fleming. “I’m sure Scot spent hours trying to figure out how to fit fifty birds as well as Mrs. Aves and her students all on one screen! I also loved that I sent him a picture of the real Emilia, my cousin’s daughter and he designed a perfect caricature of her! Life inspires art!”
Tiffany Stone wrote Dragon Surprise and Scot Ritchie illustrated The Eggs-travagant Problem and Nuts About Maps.
Designed especially for a tablet or phone, you can download the app for free at GooglePlay, the iTunes App store, or go to www.mathstorytime.ca.
