2/7/2012 8:44:32Sandra BuxtonSoshAutism-self regulation, reasoning, relaxation, relations and recognizingYesI love the transition timer, the shredder (to remove ideas the child is persevering on), the parts of the app that allow the child to calm themselves. It is one app I use everyday. YesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesI would absolutely recommend this app to Special Education teachers working with students who have Autism. It is a multifaceted app that allows for better communication and regulation of the student. It was designed by two psychologists who work directly with children who have autism, and you can tell they understand the pitfalls and barriers for these kids.All ages

2/7/2012 8:44:53Rebecca PageISentenceEnglish grammar, languageYesThis app would be more beneficial for use in small group setting with ELL or other language challenged students.YesNoNoYesYesYesNoNoYesYes, S/L therapists, reading specialists, EEN, also may be helpful for some classroom teachers IF they need more information about a student's english skills.2nd-....

2/7/2012 10:11:19Maria HelsethIDiary for kidsWritingYesI would recommend this app. I use this app with students as a journaling tool. I like that you can add pictures which allows students to document parts of the day in a visual way and allows them to comment. Since the program saves the entries both by time and date, so it allows a quick way to keep anecdotal records.YesNoYesYesYesNoNoYesYes, NoElementaryElementary

2/7/2012 11:55:41Sandra BuxtonaugieCommunication, Scheduling and tracking between home and school.YesThis is a more simplistic Proloquo2. It can be used with those students who aren't able to go through the screens to communicate. It also has a great visual schedule.YesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesThis is really intended to be on the ipad of the student who needs it, because it needs to be customized for that student. However, it is nice to have it on my ipad in case the student ipad doesn't come to school or if the sped teacher wants to play with it when the student isn't in front of them. All ages

2/9/2012 10:11:45Linda ArrowoodScribblenauts Remixwriting, spelling, problem solving, (some) readingYesI would recommend Scribblenauts Remix, not so much as a whole-class activity, but as a motivational educational game for students who are taking a break. The game offers 5 different worlds, with each world containing 10 different levels. Each level offers a new senario that the player has to help the character Max get through. To achieve completion of the level, the player must first read the problem. Next, he or she must look at the scene to understand what might be needed. Then, the player has to type in the required adjectives and nouns needed to solve the problems and complete the task. This is highly motivational for three of my students. One kiddo HATES to physically write; with this game, however, he is able to type just a few words which then become pictures on the screen. His ability to problem solve and be creative is very motivational for him. Another of my students has a cognitive disability; although he cannot spell words or read, this program has a button that will shuffle through the words others have typed, giving him options to choose from. (This program is not a learning tool for this particular student, in any way, but it is a fun activity for him to choose that is not an arcade-type game.) Finally, I have a kindergartner (all three boys are on the spectrum) who is just beginning to read. He enjoys watching the other boys play this game. He is exposed to words and he can connect the words they type to the pictures that appear; he often repeats the words he sees when the picture appears.YesYesYesYesYesNoNoYesNoThis app is wonderful for any student on the spectrum who is motivated by pictures. Certain levels of the app require one or more adjectives to be included in order for the level to be completed, so any teacher working on adjectives and nouns could use this app. This game could be appropriate for students from about 1st through 6th.

2/9/2012 10:39:53Linda ArrowoodStack the CountriesWorld geography, capitals, languages, continents, countries, maps, boundariesYesI would recommend this app. In 2nd-3rd grade at CKCS, the students have to memorize the state names and capitals; Stack the States is an awesome app for practicing these skills. Thanks to that app, one particular student of mine learned to love geography facts. Stack the Countries teaches kids map skills, continent names, country names, facts about counties including languages spoken, flag images, and boundaries. Students are asked questions (they must read them) and are given 4 options to choose from. If the student guesses incorrectly, the incorrect answer flashes red, then all incorrect choices move off the screen. The correct answer remains and "tells" the player why it is the right choice (again, the student must read the response). The questions randomly cycle through, and incorrect questions are repeated during the cycle, allowing for success. Each time a question is answered correctly, the player is given a country which has to be stacked up on previously earned countries. Once the stack reaches the finish line, the stack must remain upright for something like 5 seconds in order for the player to win the round, thus earning a new country to add to his or her collection.YesYesNoYesYesNoNoYesYesStudents with an innate interest in world geography at a young age through high school students could benefit from this app. It covers a lot of good, current information about the world. The "stack" part is motivational and sort of silly, but this hooks the kids in.4th-10th grades

2/9/2012 10:50:38Linda ArrowoodStack the States lightUS geography, capitals, states, individual state facts (flags, animals, etc.), locationsYesI would recommend this app. In 2nd-3rd grade at CKCS, the students have to memorize the state names and capitals; Stack the States is an awesome app for practicing these skills. Thanks to that app, one particular student of mine learned to love geography facts. Stack the States teaches kids map skills, state names, facts about states including capital cities, flag images, and boundaries. Students are asked questions (they must read them) and are given 4 options to choose from. If the student guesses incorrectly, the incorrect answer flashes red, then all incorrect choices move off the screen. The correct answer remains and "tells" the player why it is the right choice (again, the student must read the response). The questions randomly cycle through, and incorrect questions are repeated during the cycle, allowing for success. Each time a question is answered correctly, the player is given a state which has to be stacked up on previously earned states. Once the stack reaches the finish line, the stack must remain upright for something like 5 seconds in order for the player to win the round, thus earning a new state to add to his or her collection. The lite version only offers a certain number of questions and the ability for the player to earn only a certain number of states. YesYesNoYesYesNoNoYesYesThis is a great app for any student learning states and capitals, and for any student with a love for geography and maps.2nd-10th grade

2/9/2012 11:19:14Linda Arrowoodabcpocketphonicslowercase letter names, individual letter sounds, long vowel combinations, consonant blends, double consonants, letter formation / fine motor workYesI would recommend this app. Once you set up a student, the sounds the student should work on can be chosen. For the first activity, pocketphonics teaches students letter formation, which can be written with a stylus or finger. The next activity includes the chosen letters in a making words activity. Blanks are provided, and three letter choices are given. The first letter sound is said by the app. If the correct letter is chosen, the next sound is spoken; if incorrect, an auditory signal sounds and the letter sound is repeated. Once the word is completed, the app sounds out the word than blends it / says it fast. Then a picture is displayed with the completed word that illustrates the meaning.YesYesYesYesYesNoYesYesYespre-K-1st, students with learning disabilities or cognitive disabilities, students learning and with pre-reading skills.K-2nd grade

13
2/9/2012 11:31:17Linda ArrowoodFirstThenCreation of visual schedules, visual routines, visual steps to completing a projectYesI recommend this app. By using the camera on the iPad, authentic pictures of projects, the child him/herself, and actual images from the school environment can be used to create visual assistants. Images can be imported from email (such as from home), as well as from the image library of supplied pictures. Typed words can be included for readers which appear next to the images (depending which visual mode you select). It is a fast way to create visual schedules. It is easy to edit schedules and create visual changes in routines. Once the schedule/routine is created, it is easy for most students to manipulate the schedule in order to see what will be coming up next.YesNoYesYesYesNoNoYesNoThis is a super way to use the iPad for students who are on the spectrum and for those who need visual assistance. Also could be used to show / demonstrate complicated, multi-step skills.ANY
14
2/9/2012 11:38:59Linda ArrowoodTimeTimer Time lapse, pre-telling time skills, transition skillsYesI recommend this app. The app is far less money than purchasing an actual TimeTimer clock. The app offers costumization of color choice, name, mode, duration. Multiple clocks can be created and stored for reuse by different students and/or classes and for different activities. There is an audible signal option with tone and number of plays options to indicate when the time has elapsed.YesYesYesYesYesNoYesYesYesThe TimeTimer app is recommended for any classroom which functions on routine and consistancy. I also recommend it for any student who requires visual assistance for understanding transition times or when certain activities / classes will end.ANY

2/9/2012 11:44:51Linda ArrowoodAppminerFinding paid apps for free!NoI recommend this app! This is FREE! It helps me, on a near daily basis, to continue expanding my own knowledge of what apps have to offer. This app lists apps that were recently paid apps that are free, usually for a limited time; it also lists apps that have dropped in price but are still paid apps. This app does not work within the district, so it requires taking the iPad to a public location or to your home to access the content. It includes categories to search within, as well as a search function.NoNoYesNoNoNoNoNoYesAnyone with an iPad could benefit!ANY
