Kindergarten iPad Resource List

This list will focus on Free apps for teachers and students. It will also provide websites with app smashing ideas.

Book Creator for iPad

The simple way to create your own beautiful iBooks, right on the iPad.
Read them in iBooks, send them to your friends, or submit them to the iBookstore.

Toontastic

One of the best ways for kids to learn is by telling stories. It gives them a chance to use new vocabulary and think through new concepts. This is one of the reasons why I love Toontastic. The app itself is free and comes with a few basic backgrounds and characters.

Little Bird Tales

Little Bird Tales is a storytelling and e-learning tool that can be implemented in hundreds of ways, and is great for kids of all ages, even for children who can't read and write!

Educreations

Create and share amazing video lessons from your ipad or browser.

TeachMe: Kindergarten

TeachMe: Kindergarten keeps children engaged with a rather unique reward system where children earn a coin for every three correct answers. Coins can then be used to purchase stickers to place in fun sticker scenes or to purchase items for the new virtual aquarium. Sticker scenes can be exported as wallpaper or emailed to family and friends.

Three Ring

Record of Reading

Description

Running records, developed by Marie M. Clay, are a method for observing and assessing a child’s oral reading. The Record of Reading app is designed to provide an electronic form for taking a running record. The app provides embedded formulas for the accuracy and self-correction rate (no need for a calculator!), but of course, the teacher does all the coding and analysis. Once the running record is complete, it can be saved in a file or emailed. In addition, the app records the student’s voice while the teacher simultaneously takes the record. When replaying the running record, the oral reading and the record are synced. For more information on taking running records, please see "An Observation Survey of Early Literacy Achievement" (Clay, 2005).

Kidblog

Kidblog is designed for K-12 teachers who want to provide each student with an individual blog. Students publish posts and participate in academic discussions within a secure classroom blogging community. Teachers maintain complete control over student blogs and user accounts.
