Welcome back to Awesome Apps! I have some more good ones for you! :)
This is one of the coolest apps out there! It is highly engaging and entertaining, AND can be used many different ways--use it for short storytelling, as an exit ticket/slip, introduce a concept, demonstrate learning, vocabulary, research report, etc.
Start by choosing your sock puppet or puppets, a background, and props:
After you make your choices, the set is then prepared for you:
Move the props and characters around by touching and dragging.
After that, press the record button at the top of the screen and then start talking! You can tap another puppet to switch characters and even move them around while recording. Press stop when finished, it will "scrub" your voice, and then it is ready to view! Here is a demonstration I recorded for you:
This app uses the game of concentration to reinforce several math concepts. You customize the game by picking the concept, card view, and level.
You can have the cards be opaque, like this.....
...or be translucent.
I, personally, like the translucent view better so the students can focus more on the concept and not so much on remembering the cards' positions.
Once a match is made, the cards are placed in the windows of the purple building.
I think this app is great for multiple grade levels--basic numbers and shapes can be used for all elementary (review or remediation for older kids) and the fractions, percent, and multiplication can be used for the upper elementary grades. It can easily be an independent or partner game or even be used in small groups.
And now, an app for the littles!
Tiny Hands Sorting Apps
Price: $2.99 or lite version for free
There are 3 of these simple and wonderful apps that are perfect for little hands and little minds. My daughter loves them! In each game, there are 3 games offered for free:
Kids will sort the objects by color, size, mode of transportation, etc.
Happy downloading and happy Tuesday! :)
