I'm a third grade teacher for a dual language immersion program, I have students learning Portuguese as a second language. I have students between ages 8-9. They are from different social levels and social conditions. Also I have students from Brazil, being able to feel "home" in my classroom.
Learning a second language, the students need to be in touch with different resources, like technology and virtual activities. For them to be able to do those activities, they need good materials, and having a good headphone will give them a better experience, being able to understand the target language that they are learning. They already have a good website that they use everyday, called Elefante Letrado, where they read books in Portuguese virtually. On this website they can also listen the book, to make sure how they can pronounce right the words.
