Appy-Picking Month: Zoo Champs
Though released to coincide with the 2012 Summer Olympics, and with a bit of a British feel, Zoo Champs ($1.99) is an interactive book that transcends seasons to grab the attention of any of your sports-interested learners (and probably those who are not!). Adorable graphics and animations, along with audio-supported text will allow you to explore categories, verbs, sequences and informational text with all kinds of learners. Try acting out some of the sports "events" (except maybe synchronized swimming) for pragmatic and movement activities.
