I-Pad Apps You Can Use in The Classroom!

My Husband bought me an I-Pad 3 for my wedding present and can I say I have been loving it! I have found so many educational apps for school.  I wish that I could have an ipad for every child to use. My class would be kicking it with technology! I listed some apps that you could use in the classroom by subjects below. :)

Have a BLESSED day!!

Kindergarten-1st Grade I-Pad Apps:

  Teaching Math Skills with Technology:

Common Core Standards K.OA.2 Add and Subtract within 10

You can use a great free app- Find Sums by Math Tappers Their description from the iTunes store "MathTappers: Find Sums is a simple game designed to help learners to make sense of addition (and subtraction as a related operation), and then to support them in developing accuracy and improving their speed."

The students used a ten frame and selected numbers that added up to ten. The game tracks accuracy and speed, so the children kept playing to try to get 100% accuracy and fast.  They can also add up to 20, and 100 using the apples.
