Etoys is a good "programming" environment for this age group. I know quite a 
few non-English children who loved the ability to model real world stuff in 
Etoys. They tend to think of Etoys as a modeling or "play acting" environment 
rather than a 'programming' environment.

It definitely introduces programming concepts to children in a gentle, 
unpretentious way.
