DocAS - $0.99 - (High School) This app is also a PDF reader, but has the ability to annotate and make notes over the top of books, notes etc. eBook Creator - $4.49 - (All Ages) A fantastic eBook creator for students. „eBook Creator‟ is the simplest and easiest eBook creation app. Its interface is designed for all ages and skill levels so that young kids are able to make eBooks using the app. eBook Magic - $4.99 – (All Ages) The App for making Books, Pages and iBooks with the most output & share options. Read yours in iBooks, Order a Printed Book online, and share with friends. * Optimized for creating any type of book: photo albums, children‟s books, scrap books, text books* Limited only to your imagination. eBook Magic can even create one-page letters or photo collages.
  • 9. Evernote - Free – (All Ages) Evernote is an easy-to-use, free app that helps you remember everything across all of the devices you use. Evernote lets you take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders, and makes these notes completely searchable, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go. Final Argument - $7.99 - (Suitable for Grade 5-6) Use the iPad to deliver your presentation in the most powerful way - taking advantage of existing PDF/Keynote/PPT slides, the interactive whiteboard, video recordings, being always in control of what's visible to the audience and what's visible just to the presenter. After that, nothing else remains - as if the beamer was struck with a huge exclamation mark! Final Argument is an app designed specifically for presenters, giving the ability to create presentations „on the fly‟ using content from many sources.
  • 10. Grafio - $8.99 – (All Ages) Grafio empowers all of the visual thinkers with this great app. It will work perfectly for all ages. Students/Teachers can make flow charts, organizational charts, business process diagrams, venn diagrams, mind maps, take notes, sketches and other illustrations. Everything is custom and modifiable. I really like this app. Grammar Jammers - Free – (Elementary) (There are more advanced versions for older students) Uses games, songs, rhymes etc. Grammar Jammers Primary Edition includes unique animations and quiz questions on the following topics: Adjectives, Contractions, Nouns, Pronouns, Punctuation, Sentences Verbs. This company also has a series of apps called Vocabulary Central for specific grade levels. These are extremely good apps too and they are also free.
  • 11. Grammar Up - $4.99 (There is a free version) – (Middle/High School) Grammar Up is a multiple choice quiz system for English which provides over 1800 questions across 20 grammar categories. Grammar Up can help learners to improve their grammar, word selection and vocabulary. Grammar Up provides learners with an opportunity to improve strategies for grammar success. Interactive Alphabet -$3.99 – (Elementary) Fun, attractive application for letter recognition. Intro to Letters - $5.99 – (Elementary) One of my favorite apps for handwriting, sound recognition, letter recognition. This is another app by the Montessorium developers. I recommend any apps they produce, they are extremely good.
  • 12. Kid in Story - $6.99 – (Elementary and Special Needs Students) Kid in Story Book Maker makes it easy and fun to create visual stories to support learning, social modeling, and early literacy with the individual child as the star character. Little Speller1 - Free – (Elementary/Early Years) Three letter Words spelling. This is a really good app as you have to match the letters to the words and then it reinforces the letters in each word. There are a number of different apps in a similar style. Little Speller2 $1.19 - (Elementary/Early Years) Four letter Words spelling. As above
  • 13. Little Speller - $1.19 – (Elementary) Sight Words Words spelling. As above. Literacy (Suitable for Aus, UK & USA schools) - $4.49 – (All Ages) Students can have experiences in reading, writing, listening and speaking, viewing and representing using this app. Literacy contains the education-approved handwriting fonts used in all UK, US, Australia and New Zealand schools. Literacy is 'open scaffold' by design and has a toolkit that simply delivers. Teachers can create your own lessons (scrolling sentences using our 'Hold and Scroll' approach) with sounds, images and text and have the students respond via writing or recording audio. This is a super, amazing app, I love it. (See also the School Writing app by the same developer).
  • 14. Literary Analysis Guide - $3.99 (This is a bit advanced but could be beneficial for Grade 6 students or those students needing extension) By arranging the elements of literature graphically around three wheels (poetry, prose, and rhetoric), teachers and students are better able to visualize how the elements of literature develop style and meaning. Click on any of the literary terms listed around the wheels, and a screen appears with a detailed definition of the term, several examples from literature, and additional questions to ask yourself about how that device is employed in the literature you are currently studying. Click on “Figures of Speech” from any of the three wheels, and the “Figures of Speech Wheel” appears, which functions in the same way as the three others.
  • 15. Magnetic Alpha - $2.49 – (All Ages) Use like a blackboard - you can write words, sentences etc using the magnetic alpha. Poet's Pad - $6.99 - (Poetry classes/High School) Poet's Pad is a creative writing tool for poetry and spoken word which contains powerful idea generating tools that are designed to inspire creative expression and eliminate writer's block. This is a great tool for students to explore poetry writing. *Please note there are some words in this app that would be deemed inappropriate for Primary students, however they can be deleted in the settings tab of the app.
  • 16. ReadNRespond - $0.99 – (Middle/High School) Organized according to Bloom's taxonomy, this versatile app provides student response forms that are applicable to any piece of literature, movie, or text available. Perfect for middle & upper grades, the forms can be student-choice or teacher-directed. Teachers can do group instruction by projecting and completing a form through a projector or mirroring application. Model how to do a form in front of the whole class and then assign it to an individual or small group.
