From my friends at Spanish Playground, a great FUN and FREE web game to learn Spanish vowel sounds. Thanks Spanish Playground!!!
iPhone/iPad app, Learn to Tell Time, is not wildly fun as there is not crazy thumb action involved, but has layers of difficulty so it’s actually worth the money.
I really like Spanish Playground which is a blog for learning Spanish that is geared for children. It’s on my blog roll in the footer. Here you can learn to play Simon Says in Spanish and learn parts of the body as well!
This list (slightly paraphrased) is from Dr. Prakash Dheeriya, a professor of finance, who is the author of the Finance for Kidz series that teaches kids about money management, personal finance and planning for the future.
I pair these two excellent books together because they tell two parts of the same story: the near eradication of the Snowy Egret caused by a fashion trend and the birth of the Audubon Society in Boston, Massachusetts.
Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes by Faye-Lynn Wu and Kieren Dutcher is an appealing CD and book combo to expose younger kids (ages 2-7) to Chinese through songs and nursery rhymes. It would be a great in a classroom as well for units on China and/or Chinese New Year. I highly recommend this book!
True or False series by Melvin and Gilda Berger is a young science series in a fun question-and-answer format. My kids reviewed Storms and Birds and gave both a thumbs up. For ages 6-9.
