New Apps for SAD6 iPads

Below is an email message that I sent to my staff (K-5 teachers) today.

I have added a few new apps to all of the carts.

*ScribblePress - A fabulous book creating app with excellent art tools, stickers, and the ability to import photos. The template has a Title Page, Story Section, and Author Page. Books can be exported to iBooks or sent by email. More info or More info

Story Me - The app that I raved about recently. Students can create comic strips and share easily.

Zalairos Adventures by Skoolbo - This app is loaded with 25 different read along chapter books. 

*Green Screen by Do Ink - Capture videos of students in front of a green screen and then add any background you want. Your students can be in the Rain Forest, in front of the White House, or even on top of a mountain.

Funny Movie Maker - Use your mouth on any picture and record your voice. An extremely fun creation app. Students will love to say their multiplication facts, describe a project, or state their vocabulary words & meanings.

Number Pieces - A virtual set of Base Ten blocks.

Chicken Coop Fractions - A fun way to work with and learn about fractions.

Geoboard - A virtual geoboard. No more flinging rubber bands. :0)

The two starred items above are paid apps and have been also added to your classroom iPads.

Have a great long weekend!

In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but
what you have taught them to do for themselves that 
will make them successful human beings.
