Teacher Review For Sock Puppets Complete

This is a great tool for second language learners. Sock puppets help ELL students practice their newly acquired language skills. With this app, they become more comfortable expressing themselves or retelling a story.

How I Use It
I use it with ELL students to practice their English language proficiency skills. They make their own puppet, select background and make skits recording their own voices based on what they have learned.It is a great tool because it provides a risk- free environment for them to practice their language skills. It lowers their anxiety level and keeps them highly engaged. It can be used as a formative assessment tool.
My Take
I usually use this app with early-childhood and ELL's students. I was surprised to see that is targeted for grades 5-8.
