Motlies Vocabulary Trainer Spanish 1 – Shapes, Numbers, Colors and Motlies Vocabulary Trainer Spanish 2 – Animals and Body Parts, by JustKidsApps, are fun and addictive apps that took me back to my childhood game days playing concentration. These memory, matching games kept me engaged and wanting to match the vocabulary words with the pictures faster and faster each time I played. I can’t wait to share these apps with more students. They definitely help to teach and reinforce new vocabulary words for students who are acquiring Spanish as their second language. The pronunciations of the words are authentically correct and I found myself repeating the words aloud to assist in perfecting my own enunciation. I know Spanish first language learners will also love playing these games. For example, Spanish 2 – Animals and Body Parts will increase their knowledge of the wide array of animals they may not be as familiar with such as a hedgehog, porcupine, kangaroo, just to name a few….
Upon completion of each game level, you are awarded a surprise, then you can progress to the next level. The goal of these two Spanish learning apps is to increase Spanish vocabulary for primary grade students. The colorful and animated pictures are easy to identify and are designed specifically for children at the lower grade levels. Although Spanish 2 begins with vocabulary about animals, each level scaffolds upon what was learned in order to teach many other vocabulary skills and concepts. You’ll join Herold the Hedghog, who is seriously curious, with a kind personality and go on an adventure learning basic Spanish! Motlies Vocabulary Trainers makes the tedious task of learning vocabulary fun! I look forward to sharing these app with my colleagues, it will provide me with an excuse to play them again!
The Motlies are a group of very different and individual animals. They can all speak “animalish” – the common language in the wild – and are able to share their experiences and stories.
