Educational Children’s App Set in the South Has Plenty of Valuable Lessons
Cyndie Sebourn has created a unique children’s app: Smarty Britches: Nouns, an interactive storybook app designed for kids in grades 1-3.
“It is the first educational children’s app that is set in the South,” said Sebourn, a National Board Certified Teacher and owner at Sascyn Publishing. “It takes place in Arkansas, and presents the South and its charming southern people in a positive light.” Some of the locations in the app include the Arkansas River, the Razorbacks and the wildlife area of Hot Springs Village.
It is also the first educational children’s app that provides curriculum for educators and parents. “This curriculum aligns with Common Core State Standards, and while focusing on Language Arts, it is cross curricular in the areas of science, social studies, history, art, and music,” said Sebourn.
Throughout the text, kids have the options to go to non linear pages and practice what they’ve learned about nouns and then return to the story. “By watching Jackson wear his smarty britches and discover the nouns in his life, students will discover the nouns in their own lives. They will also be educated with the cultural literacy of the state of Arkansas.”
As a retired teacher who taught secondary and college English for twenty-five years, Sebourn said her passion for teaching fueled her desire to continue to educate, but this time, through a different format: technology.
She is busy working on her next project: Smarty Britches: Verbs. “I am creating a series, each focusing on the parts of speech for elementary students and each set in the South.”
Released on iPad, Android, and Kindle tablets, Smarty Britches: Nouns costs $3.99. Free curriculum can be downloaded at http://sascynpublishing.com/
