Appy Love (A Top 10 Countdown)

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

So I was inspired by the wonderful Mrs. Wills  post about apps. So I thought I would share with you my Absolute Favorite Apps.
Under 10 dollars, because well let’s be honest. We ARE teachers.
If you are blessed enough to not have to pay out of your own pocket I would suggest Proloquo2Go. It’s very helpful for students in special ed. And it allows for major differentiation.  Down side It’s a whooping 200 bucks. I dunno about you but I have student loans. I don’t have 200 bucks lying around.

So enough about expensive apps. Here is the good stuff.
I like to call it “Miss K’s extremely cheap, but amazingly wonderful list of apps between free and ten dollars!” Give yourself a pat on the back if you read that without any breaths. That’s exactly how I meant for you to say it. ;
Without further ado

10. Candy Count  - Lets kiddos practice one to one correspondence, greater than/less than and number order. It’s Cute and my munchkins Love it.
9. Funimal Phonics With a name like that, it’s bound to be fun right? Well it is. It’s a fun way that uses animals and phonics for kids to learn. I get a kick out of it and I’m in my later part of my twenties. (I didn’t like typing that.)
8. K-12 Coins- I love this app. It’s a great way to practice coins, values, and adding coins in a fun interactive way.

7. Dial Safe Pro This app walks kiddos through how to dial 911, what to do when you see a stranger and practicing time to enter your home phone number. (a lot of my kiddos are still working on learning their own phone numbers so this app is perfect)

6. Shopping Cart LOVE THIS APP. It gives students a grocery list. They then have to go to the store and pick out what they need from the list. The kicker is they have to get everything under a certain amount of money. So they are using a budget and have to work within those constraints. It’s great for my higher-level thinkers.

Stay tuned for the rest of my list that will come some time later this week. 

= & Teaching,
