Abstract
The project team is developing a prototype of a web-based intervention for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students to prepare for the transition to grade school. The product will support students as they create stories using a step-by-step scripted interactive process. The stories will focus on skills that are related to school readiness, such as self-regulation, positive behaviors with peers, positive classroom behaviors, and emerging independence. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment, and students are engaged with the prototype.
