Great for learning letters and letter sounds

Keyboarding practice for the iPad
This is a fun app that helps students learn to type on the iPad. I like how the keys disappear as the kids type, forcing them to not look at the keys. What I don't like is that is forces them to correct before moving on, which interrupts keyboarding fluency.

1-6
Spelling Free
Free
Create spelling lists and record then administer spelling tests. Records scores. Individualize spelling lists.
There is a paid version as well. I haven't yet been able to see the difference between the two. Love using this for students with individualized spelling lists.

Pocket Zoo

Kids had fun watching videos of various animals and live video feed from zoos around the world! They put their iPods under the document camera when they found an interesting video. They also read information about the animals. We specifically talked about what it means for an animal to be endangered. At the end of class, each student drew a picture of one animal and wrote one sentence sharing something they learned about their animal.
