App 1: SUSHI MONSTER
Sushi Monster is super fun! It is a great way to practice facts. The free version comes with addition and s multiplication. A monster sits in the middle of a table and gives you target numbers. You have to select to sushi plates with numbers on it that add up to his number. If you do, he's a happy camper. If not, he gets cranky and throws the food.Click here to see Sushi Monster in the app store!
App 2: SPELLING CITY
I will admit, I had signed up and tried out Spelling City well before I even got the iPads and tried the app. I decided to pay for the annual fee because I wanted to try having my kids take their spelling quizzes online. I had three different spelling lists going and it would take me at least a half hour to give them all, then kids would be absent and so on. The app came out and I got right on it. At first we could only seem to use the preset lists such as "yellow words" and homophones. My students weren't able to log in and see their list to practice their own words. However, the kids liked all of the games. The favorite has to be Hang Mouse, a super cute version of hangman. Now, the app has updated and my kids can log in and find their word list and practice with the fun games! Additionally, now they can even take their spelling quizzes on it! An overall home run!

App 3: PLACE VALUE COOKIE FACTORY
Place Value Cookie Factory was one I found just by searching at the App Store. The game is set so that you are running a cookie factory and given orders to fill. You have a certain amount of time to fill the orders. Single cookies, sleeves of ten, or boxes of 100 are available to use to get to the desired number faster. When you complete an order, a truck sounds like its zooming away! The students are mesmerized by it.Click here to see it in the itunes store ( there is a free version).
