Awesome Apps #4

It's that time again!

I love sharing such great apps with you! Here are three more for you:

Number Rack
Price: Free

Number Rack is exactly what the title suggests--a number rack. (You may refer to a number rack as an abacus or a rekenrek.) This app is PERFECT for exploring combinations of 10, multiples of 10, coutning by 10, subitizing, etc.

 You can add up to 10 number racks.

Decompose the number racks to explore combinations of 10.

You can also add a blinder so that the student has to determine the missing part (algebra!).

I love it. And I love that it is free. ;)

Jumbled Sentences 1
Price: Free

In this app, students will unscramble sentences. Great for practicing writing conventions, but also good for reading comprehension. In this version, there are 3 levels of play.

There are actually 5 of these Jumbled Sentences apps available so you can choose which works best for your students!

I Hear Ewe
Price: Free

This app is perfect for babies and toddlers. There are 3 pages of animals and modes of transportation. When you tap one of the squares the animal or vehicle makes its sound. There isn't much to this app but it will provide great entertainment for small children!

Now go and download some awesome apps! :)
