I thought your StAIR was well done.  Reading the story allowed with the presentation made it easy to follow and took into consideration the fact that not everybody is on the same reading level.

Technical Remarks:

Have you thought about linking the audio to begin right when you click to slide? This would allow for a smoother transition to each slide and take away from the constant clicking.

Pretty fun presentation.  I think kids of that age would have a really good time learning using a StAIR like the one that you created.  The sounds that you used created a fun atmosphere that made it seem like kids are playing a game show instead simply working on an assignment in the classroom. The Story to begin the presentation was fun and engaging but using images in those slides might have clarified the story a little for visual learners.  You did a great job of adding audio of the story to help those students who are struggling readers not fall behind.  I liked the vocabulary section that you added to the presentation.  I think kids that age would greatly benefit from practicing vocabulary any chance they could. I'm not sure if the rigor was there. My son just finished first grade and I know you would have found those words easy but i guess there many different students out there.  But overall, I liked it.  I thought it was fun and informative. 

Technical Remarks:

Sounds added were a great way of keeping the assignment fun and interesting.  There were no videos imbedded in the presentation.
