News-O-Matic is an app I absolutely love! It is fantastic for placing current events in the hands of your students and makes reading the news an engaging and exciting experience for children. News-O-Matic provides daily news stories for students and now they offer each one of their five articles in both English and Spanish every day. This translation is done by a native Spanish-speaking translator and there is even the option to listen to each article read aloud in Spanish.
Bilingual Current Events
Students in a bilingual classroom and Spanish speaking children who are struggling to read English will absolutely love this new feature. It’s a powerful option for students learning English and students who are learning Spanish. As the very first bilingual news app for children it is a wonderful option for classrooms where students have a variety of needs.
