PBS KIDS' online games now available in Spanish!

Monday, September 16, 2013

I was sent the following information to share with my readers on behalf of PBS Kids! These are great tools to help our children learn a 2nd language at a earlier age. My biggest regret is not getting to learn Spanish until the 8th grade. Even now I am not very good at it. Lets not make the same mistake with our kids!

¡Buenas noticias! PBS KIDS is excited to announce more than 25 PBS KIDS games are now available in Spanish.  Join the Cat in the Hat, Curious George and Sid the Science Kid for fun games and stickers en espaƱol.

Kids can play games in Spanish from their favorite shows; the games from each series are grouped into collections that are all linked by a common theme and math curriculum. The collections of games now in Spanish include:

Curious George - Busy Day (16 games)
Join George on his very busy day as he learns about numbers and counting and is introduced to addition and subtraction.

Sid the Science Kid - Sid’s Super Fab Lab: Science Fair (9 games)
Check out the science fair displays with Sid and his friends, and play games that involve
measuring (temperature, weight, and size), sorting, symmetry, addition, and finding patterns.

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! - Cat’s Math Safari (2 games)
Help the Cat in the Hat collect the missing pages of his Animal Safari Book. You’ll have to use shape recognition and spatial skills, counting, and measurement.

The games are all enhanced with researched-based improvements to level selection and instructions. For ESL students or children learning Spanish, kids will learn math skills that will benefit them not only at home, but also in the classroom.  The games are part of the Ready To Learn Initiative, an early learning project of PBS KIDS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), funded by the U.S. Department of Education to support the development of early math and literacy skills in children ages 2-8, especially those from low-income families.

You can check out all of PBS KIDS online games in Spanish at pbskids.org/games/spanish.html.  Additional games in Spanish are also available there, including Spanish language-learning games from web-original series Oh Noah!
