Apps for Learning


Do you have an iPhone, iTouch, or iPad at home?  These devices can be used as wonderful learning tools.  Below are just a few of my recommended applications.  They are fun, engaging, and best of all... they help us learn!

iRead
Free

Your child will be receiving a username and password to login to iRead.  We also use this app during our Daily 5 time.  It is a great program the district provides for all K-2 students to work on all aspects of reading.  It is individualized for them and moves along to the next level when they are ready, or repeats a level if they need additional practice.
