The Rain Rain Story App for iOS

Developer's Description

The Rain Rain Story App is more than a read along story! Children ages 1-8 will not only listen to the story. They will sing along with the Rain Rain song. They will learn a rain poem and will be able to create sound effects to play with the poem. Children will be able to play rhythm instruments - a triangle, drum, claves and rhythm sticks. Children will develop listening skills by playing the patterns game. They will be able to play a xylophone, and learn to play the Rain Rain song on it. The years from birth through age six are critical for developing musical ability. Just as all children are born with the potential to learn to speak and understand their own language, all children are born with the potential to learn to perform and understand music. Poems, chants and easy songs such as the ones used in this app promote oral language development, which is the basis for literacy development. The children who use this app will be developing pre-reading and beginning reading skills as well as developing their musical abilities.Whats Included?Rain Rain StoryThe read along story uses word highlights so beginning readers can successfully read along.Instruments PageGo to the instruments page and try playing the different instruments with the Pitter Patter chant.
