“I have one student who was speaking very little English at the beginning of the year. He is now already on the comprehension section of eSpark quests, having moved from parts of words to comprehending texts.”

for English Language Learners

Content accessible for all students, regardless of their language level

All of eSpark’s K-6 content is scaffolded to support English Language Learners from a wide range of backgrounds and skill levels.

Audio support, contextualized vocabulary practice, and speaking and listening exercises help students learn at their own pace and skill level.

English learners have access to full audio support as they work through math and ELA content, so that reading level is not a barrier to learning new skills.

Audio support is self-directed, and students decide when they need something read aloud. Teachers have control to turn audio on for any student in any grade level.

Explicit Vocabulary Instruction

Explicit vocabulary instruction helps students to build phonemic awareness, strengthen vocabulary, and grow comprehension skills.

Authentic language instruction

Spanish language quests available for K-1 ELA standards

Students should have the opportunity to learn foundational standards regardless of their English proficiency.

Rather than simply translating texts into Spanish, eSpark curates authentic, leveled Spanish language content aligned to WIDA and CCSS standards for kindergarten and first graders.

“We have a variety of needs in terms of language acquisition, from children who don’t know any English to children who are somewhat proficient but need additional language acquisition support... Every single one of our students has a device in their hands. However, for our dual language students, most of the programs out there aren’t meeting their needs.

(If you are considering a dual language program), find organizations such as eSpark that are really innovating on this idea of support English Learners with technology.”
