Great StAIR design! I appreciate the consistency of the theme design and button placement. I thought that the incorrect slide with the ‘try again’ button was creative because you had to click the button to actually go back to the previous slide and try again.

The video links worked well. From a technology perspective, I suggest you embed the videos into the PowerPoint program so that the StAIR user does not need to depend on internet speed and connection. It would also be much easier to navigate because you would not have to go back to the Power Point presentation. It would all be located in one place.

I was intrigued by the question marks that turned into images and demonstrated the corresponding sounds. I think that was an engaging and meaningful touch to your creation.

The song at the end was a nice touch. My sixth graders think these songs are so cheesy but always get a good laugh. As silly as they are, the content and tune always end up sticking in their minds.
