There are a few good ones out there. Here's a little list of ones I've found and have good reviews:

Baby plants vegetables
The opposites
Beginning sounds interactive games
Clever bird early science
Weird but true (National Geographic)
Kids song collection
ABC for kids
Discover musical instruments
Story starter ideas for writing
A life cycle app
Running records calculator

Hope these help! You can also search the App store for 'Education apps' or a specific learning area, and read reviews to check it's educational value. Good luck!

I LOVE any "Everyday Math" apps! Tric Trac, Top It, etc. They are enabled for partner play and challenge kids to really use the math skills that we are teaching while using the taking turns skills that kids lack nowadays! Just search "Everyday Math" and you'll see a wide array of choices for various levels.

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.

  • Dear Donna, thanks so much for doing these, i remember when i asked for these last year when i was teaching my special ed kids, im now at another school in NW WA and they will be just as useful in the two classes im now teaching, (Year 3 and Year 4), as the kids here arent necessarily up to the rest of the ozzie kids out there.
