Hello everyone. I’m sure everyone is very busy this month, including me, so I’m going to make this month’s column very short. Last month I introduced several online games that I thought could be fun ways for some of our more advanced students to interact in English. Well, this month I’d like to introduce some games that are suitable for our younger and less proficient students. Brain Connection has a large number of letter identifying, listening discrimination and memory games suitable for our very young students. These games are great for kindergarten and elementary school students or anyone we might want to use phonics activities with. There are about 20 games on the site and they require Shockwave to view and play. Have fun.
