Cinderella Dressed In Yellow CTP App {And a GIVEAWAY!!}

I am on snow day number 3 today! We got quite a bit of snow and ice on Sunday night and have had super freezing temps! I thought I would take advantage of the snow day and do a blog post.

Looking for some fun digital learning? Creative Teaching Press has an app for that! Cinderella Dressed in Yellow is an awesome app that Creative Teaching Press is offering for FREE until February 28, 2014! 

I wanted to share a few screen shots with you from the app. 


Type in the box to insert your name.




Throughout the digital story there are several counting opportunities for young learners! Here is an example below... How many kisses did he get? When you click on the lipstick smooches on the prince's cheek it counts out loud. Children can count them first and then tap on them to see if they were right.



Learners can tap on the words to have it read to them. If you look closely in the left hand corner you will see a pic of a microphone. There is even an option for the learner to record and listen to themselves read! How fun!


Here is another counting opportunity... How many scoops did she get? I love that not only are they practicing reading with this app but also get to count!




Once you have finished reading the story you get a certificate of congratulations. You can even add your own photo to Cinderella's face. 


There are three fun activities that can be completed once your your little learner has finished reading the digital story.


Count the tally marks... with the option of choosing easy, medium, and hard.


Help Cinderella Find the Prince... this is my favorite! It asks your learner 5 comprehension questions. LOVE! :)

Color match

I can't believe how many books there are to choose from! Wow! Such an awesome giveaway! I just downloaded Cinderella Dressed in Yellow yesterday and it is very cute! If I won I think I'd choose: I Need to Clean My Room and Did You Know because they look awesome!

Thanks for the giveaway!
