Barker and Cecilia Sinclair How We Got the Name "Spider Tales" IN the olden days all the stories which men told were stories of Nyankupon, the chief of the gods. Spider, who was very conceited, wanted the stories to be told about him. Accordingly, one day he went to Nyankupon and asked that, in future, all tales told by men might be Anansi stories, instead of Nyankupon stories. Nyankupon agreed, on one condition. He told Spider (or Anansi) that he must bring him three things: the first was a jar full of live bees, the second was a boa-constrictor, and the third a tiger.
Digital storytelling with StoryRobe StoryRobe is another way for kids to create digital stories using photos or digital copies of their own artwork. Once they've selected the images they want to use and put them in the right order, they can record the text to go with the images. They can talk for a total of up to 3 minutes, and synchronize the images with what they are saying by tapping the screen as they talk to advance to the next picture. StoryRobe creates a single video file that can then be shared. Unlike StoryKit, there is no option to add text to the finished product, as the model is more video-like than book-like. There are ways to add it it to the pictures however.

Phonemic Awareness - Pre Reading Skills - Reading Skills Pyramid Phonemic awareness is the understanding that words are made up of sounds which can be put together in different ways to make different words. Simply put, phonemic awareness is the moment a child realizes that if the "b" in "bat" is changed to a "c", then the word becomes "cat." Phonemic awareness is a critical pre-reading skill which is often overlooked. And while each child is different, most learn to read following a similar sequence. Many are able to continue with no trouble when steps are missed, but others may have difficulty later because they didn't make the connection. Learning to read should be an exciting time, and with Time4Learning, it can be.
Unit 20 Level 3 (Upper Intermediate- Advanced): Mixed conditionals Besides the four types of conditional sentences you already know (first, second, third and zero), there is a fifth type which is used when the time in the "if" clause is not the same as the time in the main clause. These are called “mixed conditionals”, as they combine two different types of conditional patterns. 1) Watch this video to learn how second and third conditionals can be used together by mixing and matching the “if” and main clauses, thus forming a mixed conditional.
