The items to be used can be chosen in the upper left corner: circles, bugs, stars, or apples.

The
**Next**

button should be clicked when a student believes that she has correctly completed a frame. The number buttons at the bottom of the screen can be used to enter an answer, or the computer keyboard can be used.

Questions for students:
