Toontastic

Toontastic is a fun and creative way to teach young readers about story arcs. Using the iPad app, authors are able to narrate and animate their characters in order to tell a story. The prescribed scenes are presented in an easy-to-follow outline, beginning with the setup and progressing through conflict, challenge, and climax before the resolution scene. After the scene is complete, music can be added to perfectly compliment the action.
