Free Apps to Support Vocabulary Acquisition by ELLs
One of my favorite aspects of integrating technology into instruction is the availability of resources to support students with different learning needs. Students who are struggling can benefit from the excitement and engagement offered by a tool like the iPad. Teachers of English-Language Learners (ELLs) can use technology to promote growth in their students. Kids' Vocab by MindSnacks This is one of my favorite literacy apps for all students, and it is a great tool for ELLs. English First High Flyers EF High Flyers is an easy-to-use game that helps students learn new vocabulary words starting with numbers and everyday objects.
