Heckerty Cooks - Character Description Activity

Heckerty Cooks - Fun iPad AND Android App!

Dlownload app here:
Heckerty Cook

This interactive story is fun for multiple purposes:
1) Encouraging Requesting - BEST app ever for this purpose
- Many pictures have multiple actions.  For example, on the last page, patting the cat's full tummy, results in:
- burping
- meowing and stretching
- farting!

2) Playing Guess Who Characters
a)  First, do a picture walk
b) Next, have each student choose a character from the pictures
-   Note, I put the 5 main characters on notes in Sticky app (see below)
c) Read the story, with each student listening for information about their character
d) Have each student write 3 clues about their character, with the first clue more subtle, and the last clue more obvious
e) Remaining students make guesses after each clue
-  Note, I made text notes for each set of clues, again using Sticky

  1. Thank you for the great shout out! We have two more apps coming in the very near future, and 2 more early next year. And we have cauldron bubble games that teach kids to recognize letters and we have crosswords If you'd like to test them out - we'd love to have you! Please contact me at janziff@heckerty.com
