Talking Tom is an app that has a talking cat. The user can say anything they want to the cat and it will repeat it in a high pitch voice. When I first got this for my son, I thought this was a toy. But when I had my students read to the cat, they wanted to read more words. ELL students need to be given opportunities to speak and this app does it. I have seen the quietest kids in the classroom talk more because of this app.
