Sharing the Love of Languages

Our Digital Natives

Our digital natives inspire us.

Our children, Soleil (4) and Geo (2), love to use our iPod and iPhone to play instrument apps. They also both ask to play Super Why which teaches basic English literacy. Soleil plays games that have taught her the alphabet in French and she can sing along to several children’s songs in French from YouTube.

We are wondering if there’s any other parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, teachers, etc., out there who are inspired as we are, by the digital natives in their lives…and if so, how? What are you doing with your inspiration? We’d love to hear!

As teachers and as parents we want to keep learning about the new amazing apps that hand-held devices are providing for our digital natives in the classroom and at home. Sometimes it’s hard to sift through all the possibilities! There are so many!! If you have found any must-have apps or other online resources for learning Math, French, Spanish or English, please share! Thank you!

  1. Our favorite English literacy app is not a freebie…but it’s worth the money. It’s called:

    SUPER WHY!

    Why is it our favorite? It teaches the ABCs with familiar characters from the video series. Even our two year old enjoys it since if you keep choosing incorrectly, you can still move on, it just takes more taps of the finger before you earn your “sticker.” You are told how amazing and terrific you are on your way through the adventure.

    It also teaches rhyming, reading, spelling and handwriting.

  2. Ooh! Will definitely check it out!
