This is the first episode of a series of digital stories that were created to teach English for children between 3 and 7 years old, using music and ludic activities. I've created 7 characters of extraterrestrial origins. Each character comes from a different planet in our solar system, and they came to Earth in a joint mission that is: help children around the world to learn English while having hips of fun. Each character has a different personality that reflects common traits presented by the children of the new millennium. The tittle chosen for my characters is "Lunatics" and the first digital story is named "The Lunatics arrive on Earth".
I hope those videos will be of great educational value for children, entertaining them while teaching a second language naturally in a fun digital environment. I believe it will be a great support for teachers around the world that are willing to bring some fun and interactivity into the classroom, while using the digital world in a positive learning environment. Parents will also be able to have a great support through the use of those educational videos at home.
