aaaChalkboard Pro for iPadArtAllFun chalkboard - it is basically a chalkboard. The sound can be annoying. Sam---When given to a 5 year old girl, she actually drew with this one. I like it for its simplicity and limited choices for color and writing implements! I'm amused by the sound. No oversight, but free opportunity to fool around for sake of investigation, fun$0.99
3
xBrushesArtadults, older kidssophisticated, costs too much to make it worth it compared to simpler apps$7.99
4
aKid PaintArtallI had a 5 year old try this and it was way too frustrating-- too many options that weren't responding to her pressure on the buttons. I was not enjoying it either, frankly. Do not like stamps.Free
5
aDoodle BuddyArtallDo not like the stamps, prefer individual expression, not guided by prefab artFree
6
xAdobe IdeasArtadults, older kidsToo sophisticated look, interface for kFree
7
aaaDraw FreeArtallA precocious 5 year old girl that used this for me loved it. She really went into a "finger paint" mode with it. Good, independent expressionFree
8
aaaMirrorPaint LiteArtallthis was mesmerizing and fun. I could see it used during lessons on symmetry and mirror images. It is definitely a play toy app, however.Free

14
aaaiWriteWordsHandwritingKguided, structured handwriting practice - we like that it prevents incorrect letter formation$2.99
15
xIntro to Letters by MontessoriumHandwritingKnot bad - not as good as the iWriteWords. Letters, numbers and stroke order are farther away from HWT. Can be used independently for more solid "handwriters"$4.99
16
xABC PrintHandwritingPK-KVery simple and understandable layout, nice that it will demonstrate how to write each letter for you as well as say the letter name, usefulness may extend into first grade with paid version adds lower case letters, one drawback is that you have no way to choose a letter (you are stuck working in alphabetical order) Not good because you don't need to write the letter correctly to move on.Free
17
aaaIntro to Math by MontessoriumMathKSimple and good for sorting, number sense, we like this for k$4.99
18
xTens FramesMathno action - no structure - not an interactive learning tool - would only be good for something a teacher uses to demonstrate an concept - no for k age student independent practice$0.99
19
aaThinkertoy ShapesMathKGood for independent geometery and shapes explorations - nice graphics$1.99

aaNumerate: Count, Add and SubtractMathkThis seems entirely too elementary - good for independent practice with counting$0.99
27
aaPark Math HDMathkYou don't have to finish the exercise or do it correctly to move on.$1.99
28
xMotion Math HDMath4th graders enjoy this- good to approximate the size of fractions and compare...also has decimals and uses a number line.But after 5-8 minutes, they are burned out of it and have gone through all the levels. Not for K, but other app by same company looks good.$2.99
29
2nd grade and upenjoys this app at beginning and medium levels but definitely burns out after about 5 minutes at most.
30
aaaMotion Math ZoomMathK and upGood for number sequence, number line
31
aaMath BingoMathK and upGood addition practice
32
aaNumber Sense HDMathkIt would be nice if the level could be adjusted$0.99
33
xMy first Tangrams HDMathHas a bug, and is too frustrating to give to kindergarteners$1.99
34
xPiggy HD MathMathThis has little value for any age.$3.99
35
xClock MasterMatholder studentsFree
36
xRocket MathMathI personally enjoyed the variety of challenges in this one. There is some basic stuff, but some much more complex money tasks as well. Just figuring out what boosters to use on the rocket is a challenge of physics. Great for olders kids. Tested by a five year old and she loved it. Some of the levels require a reading level she didn't have as well as the number or shape recognition. If we buy it, might we find a wider range of grade level challenges? Not for K.Free
37
xFuzzy ClockMatholder studentsFree
38
xEveryday Math Monster SqueezeMath GameJust one and that's it? Better to play it on the table with real cards.$1.99

47
aaaAlphatotsReadingkPlayful and fun while teaching basic phonics skills$2.99
48
xWordsReadingkNot a strong enough literacy componentFree
49
xAlphabet RacingReadingThis is actually Alphabet "tracing" and it is lame. There is no feedback if you do it incorrectly or not. Five year old tested and she caught on quickly that it didn't matter how you really drew over the dotted letters.Free
50
xAlphabet CarReading/Spellingnot good - too gamey and gimmicky - doesn't really support learning, just game manipulation Sam-- I actually thought this was a good one and so did the 5 year old I asked to try it. The manipulation part was what really held her attention. The three different levels in the "beginner" category built up letter recognition skills and memory for spelling. The preschool level was waaaay too repetitious for any child familiar with letters. It would be worth having for more complex words-- a good review and practice game for K's.Free
51
2nd grade this is a favorite for my 7 year old tester. bought the full version as she was really enjoying the lite
app., has worked on it many times since then. Pros - student reviews and learns to spell new words, app is easy to use and manage. Cons - maybe somewhat repetitive? Although this was not the opinion of the tester...
52
aaThe Beast NianReading/StoriesKGreat stories, nice illustrations, can manually turn pages or let app turn pages for you. Would be nice for a listening center activity.$0.99
53
ChineseToo advanced for beginning Chinese. For native speakers
54
aaStory PatchReading/Writingknot a bad one - for K the typing component isn't so great - would be nice if it allowed for audio for story dictation. Seems like this would be difficult for most kindergarten children. $0.99
55
aaaSpell Blocks with Sight WordsSpellingkTeachers like this for classroom$1.99
56
aaaPictelloWriting/ReadingallThe best app we found for creating a story using personal pictures. Allows for narration or writing.
57
xStory PalsWriting/ComposingallNot sure how to use this in the classroom.
58
xBuild a StoryWritingKToo pre-prepared, not much room for creative expression
59
aaStory WheelWritingKA good tool for encouraging creativity - kid must speak "text" to go with a pre-selected picture
