Common Core and More!

I think this is the most valuable FREE app I've found yet!  I have found the standards hard to maneuver and slow to load but this app puts all of the common core standards right at your fingertips.  In less than 15 seconds, you can have your grade level and subject pulled up right in front of you.   Awesome, awesome resource!

Reading Trainer

This probably doesn't qualify as "fun," but the reading nerd in me is getting a kick out of "Reading Trainer."  It claims to improve your reading speed, blah blah blah, AND you can post your scores that outsmart your friends on Facebook? LOL  Well, somehow, I find it interesting and yet another way to spend 5 minutes playing with an Ipad.  There's all sorts of eye exercises, letter and number challenges, and anagramming that increases your score.  The great won't let you complete another lesson for 30 minutes, so you CAN'T do it for hours! $1.99- not a bad deal!

  3. Both of these sound great...thanks! The link to the Common Core one was not working, though. I was wondering if you could give us the name of the app...I really want to check it out! Thanks. :)
