Scrabble Like Game for Math


This game is amazing!  If you like to play Scrabble and wish there was a math version, here it is.  Students use the numbers and operations to create a number sentence.  Instead of building on the words like in Scrabble, you build on the number sentences.  Even though this is an iPhone app, you can enlarge the screen and it works perfectly on the iPad.  The app prompts you to login with Facebook or e-mail, but is unnecessary.  By selecting start a local game, students can play with classmates without providing personal information.

Mad Libs Anyone?


The Mad Libs app brings the paper and pencil version to life on the iPad.  The Original that you see in the photo is free.  The app tells the students what to type in.  An added touch to the app version is that students have a "hint" icon to touch if they are stumped.  When all blanks have been filled in students are then able to read their story.

App Crazy

My addiction to technology is an understatement!  In my household you will find three iPhones, three iPads, an iPod, three laptops, and a desktop.  Truthfully, I can't believe that I just admitted that!

iPads and other tablets are quickly becoming the current fad in schools.  There are thousands of educational apps at our fingertips, but it can be overwhelming when it comes time to finding exactly what you need.  When searching for an appropriate app I tend to find a lot more than what I actually set out for, although it doesn't necessarily fit my purpose.

This site is dedicated to all things iPad/tablets.  Student Apps for Education will help you find what you need all in the name of apps.  Whether you are looking for an app to assist in classroom management or reinforce a skill, this site will help you in the overwhelming task of finding appropriate apps.
