Hey Friends! Today we had a ball introducing our kids to the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss! I am fortunate enough to have 10 iPods in the classroom for the kids to use throughout the day. I have 5 Shuffles, and 5 iPod Touches. We mainly use these for Daily 5, although kids can also go to them when they have finished other work. Today I bought a fun App that I wanted to share with you, just incase you have iPods or iPads in your room as well. My babes at home were excited as well. If you haven't tried the apps from Oceanhouse Media, you need to. They are books that are very interactive, that use all of the original artwork and illustrations. What's great for me, is that they are still apps, and not iBooks, so the kids can find them without having to search around. The app I got today was a Dr. Seuss Collection. It was definitely spendier than I usually get, but I wanted to get a few books, and this did save some money. 5 books for a total of $11.99 at the App store.
If that is to much money, you can also get a single book for $2.99.
And then for free, you can also get the lite version of the books, which is the same as a teaser. Honestly, sometimes any "LITE" app annoys me, because it's frustrating to have only a small piece, but definitely a good choice for free.
And this is just a fun little puzzle from the new movie The Lorax. Not really educational, but fun. And best of all, totally free!
There are many more at the App store, but I wanted to share a few I liked. Hope it's helpful for you! I can't wait to ask our PTC for my next iTunes gift card... :)
On another note, our March Math Journal Prompts are up at our TpT store. If you haven't checked these out this year, make sure to head on over. All of our Math Journal Prompts are aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and they've been incredibly useful for our students this year.
One day down... four more to go!
