Often times math doesn't get mentioned much when it comes to ELLs but with the new SBAC assessment students are being asked to articulate math using language in ways that they haven't before. Sokikom's Spanish version is a great tool for teachers that do not speak Spanish but have Spanish speaking ELLs in their class. Now, teachers can assign a math lesson to their student(s) who can watch a video in Spanish on how to master the lesson, then apply what they just learned in an interactive game platform that resembles the SBAC.
The program has received positive feedback from several schools that have piloted it in Spanish. As Linda Laneback, a 5th grade teacher in Tempe, AZ puts it, "Sokikom really is being meticulous about how they are trying to get children to understand math and make it easy for teachers to understand how their children are learning in both English and Spanish."
