I really enjoyed exploring your StAIR. I must begin by saying that it is so CUTE! Children will love it. I adored the graphics you chose. I also felt that it was very easy to navigate through. I liked the choices in the begining. And I absolutly loved the game. I can see children having a good time with that. Your StAIR makes Circle stories very easy to understand for children. Each slide offered a new and pleasent surprise; wheather it be the nice graphics or activity, students will respond well to it. If I could change anything, I woudl problabley add audio or video. Great job overall. 

Technical Remarks:

No technical problems.

This is a great presentation. I like the layout and creativity in it.  It is simple enough for young ages but I found myself captivated in the lesson. 

Technical Remarks:

Some of the images covered text.  Also, some of the text was broken into to
lines mid word.  The biggest improvement I would like to see it audio.  Usually
with presentations I like to click through them myself unless there is audio
guiding me.  A simple recording with this would knock it out of the park.

I really enjoyed the graphics that you chose (sticking with the circle theme is a nice touch) and I think children would respond positively to them as well. The directions are also clear and easy to follow. It only took me about 10 minutes to walk through the slideshow, but it would take children longer to read through and process the information and directions. I like the slide where the students create their own circle story and would love to see a graphic or example of one of these embedded into the powerpoint. Very cute lesson!

Technical Remarks:

The link did not work on the resources page or on the activity/games page. All of the other links are in working order.
