iPad Apps

With school over, I have found myself with extra time to go through some of the apps I have gotten. Every few days, I go here to check out free apps for the day. If any look decent, I download them, then go through them later. I have found some great apps from here! I have yet to pay any money for school apps.

Here are some of my recent great finds.
This is Word Wonderland. It is great for phonics! There are 3 levels, and it covers so many skills--short vowels, long vowels, blends, digraphs, etc. You can set up different levels for different kids, and they move up "worlds" as they improve. Super cute! It is normally $1.99.

Slate Math is great for K and 1st! It covers some of the very basic skills (counting and writing numbers) and goes up to addition. What I love about this app is that you can start from the very beginning and go through every skill, or you can choose to work on just one skill and do every game about that skill. Perfect for my kiddos who come in a little behind and need extra practice in one area. Right now...it's still free!!! 

This one might be my favorite. It's called Make 10 Plus. You get a number tile at the top, then match it with one at the bottom to make 10. So simple and fun. I might have even gotten caught up playing this game for a little too long.
Another great thing, you can change what number you want to make, from 5 up to 100. A super easy way to differentiate. Right now...it's FREE! Go pick it up!

What are some of your favorite apps?


  1. OH MY GOODNESS. I just got 2 iPad Minis through Donors Choose and I wish I would have known about this site a long time ago! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I don't think I took advantage of my iPad nearly as much as I should have last year. I will definitely be checking these out for next year so I can change that! Thanks!

    1. I feel exactly the same way! I am hoping to do much better next year!
