iPad Apps To Love

It's been a while since I've posted about iPad Apps we are loving, and the list is growing!

I Write Words is the best handwriting app I have come across. What I love most is that it requires kids to trace the letter the proper way, and the little crab that guides you squeaks if you go the wrong way. Plus, it has a few extra features that make it engaging for little ones doing handwriting practice.

Little Explorers ABC Go is another favorite. The entire app is various forms of transportation, organized in abc order, and the bonus is there is a YouTube video demonstrating each and every mode of transportation. We are big fans of the ice skating and unicycle examples.

Little Things is a fun finding app that has a nice twist to it.

For the adults, I am loving the Zinio app. It gives me access to tons of magazines, and I get a full article from about ten features magazines a month. If I choose to purchase the magazine, great. If not, I can always wait until next month to read more articles for free. Just love this one.

Lastly, I must forewarn that Chicktionary is a bit addicting, especially for those who love word games. Anything that has kids playing around with words is a good thing.

Love the tips and recourse Tara. Here's a new one that I like ... StoryKit. It's a free App, has older printed texts, and also let's you create your own books.

Thanks for the list of apps! I'm passing your website on to the teachers who are testing the iPad at our school.
