Thinking Thursday – Lingro
Do you have kids that struggle with vocabulary? Do they struggle with reading non-fiction websites? Is your child’s first language something other than English? Do you have a younger child that is learning how to read and understand new words? Lingro is a website that will fix all of these issues.
This is the coolest new online dictionary that I have seen in a long time. This dictionary lets you enter a website and then click on any word at that website to get its definition. Lingro even remembers all of the words that you looked up, so that you can easily review and study them. It allows your child to even play games to remember and review the vocabulary words that they looked up while they were reading the passage. This also allows the parents to see what words their child is struggling with as they are reading a certain passage about a certain topic. For example, if you are working on the Civil War and are having them read a passage online, then Lingro will help you to know what words they do not understand when it comes to this war.
Finally, do you have a student learning a new language. They can enter a website that has the information in the language that they are learning. If they get stuck on a word, they can click on it, and Lingro will translate it for them back into English.
This website is FREE and very easy to use. Please check it out.
