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.

Zlata Filipovic, whose journal was Sarajevo's answer to Anne Frank's diary, tells of her fears for Bosnia today But unfortunately for her, the life she relates in her diary is more often compared to that of Anne Frank, trapped in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation. The Serb siege of Sarajevo went on longer than the Second World War siege of Leningrad, now St Petersburg. Its 380,000 people were left without food, electricity, water or heating for 46 months, hiding from the 330 shells a day that smashed into the city. Bosnians and Croats – who started off as allies – then turned against each other, so the Serbs, Bosnians and Croats all ended up fighting a war that took more than 100,000 lives, made half of the population homeless and left the once ethnically mixed country devastated and divided into mono-ethnic enclaves. And while the horrors of war raged on, Miss Filipovic continued her diary. The handwritten notebook detailed her ordinary life, her reaction to the war, and her hopes and fears for the future.
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.
