A really GREAT app that I have downloaded to our Ipad is Toontastic. My kids absolutely love it. I wouldn't necessarily say it is educational in that it teaches math, phonics, or history, BUT it does teach them creative writing. They have so much fun with it!

I purchased Stack the States ($0.99) last week for using with our homeschool group and we didn't get to use it there. We came home and started using it and my son (4th grade) loves it. I have played it too and it is a lot of fun and educational. The main game asks questions about a state and you tap the right state. Then you stack the states (think Tetris) until you cross a line. Every time you get the states stacked across the line you earn a state for your map (you can set up multiple profiles) and then when you collect enough states for your map you unlock mini games. This one is definitely well worth the $0.99 and I am going to look into other apps made by the same guy/company.

Have a Blessed day!

My children are currently using scribblenauts remix ($0.99) . This app is used daily.it leaves my children begging for help with spelling and creative thinking skills to progress through levels. They also go back to levels they have already beaten when the think of more interesting ways to attempt to beat the challenge provided.

In addition to that they started today ith DragonBox+. This app provides basic algebraic instruction. I was skeptical of paying $5.99 for an app. But after playing with this one for a short time today my oldest who had been struggling with basic concepts since the beginning of the year took longer to ask me to help her with her work. My younger children who aren't working in an algebra book are progressing thru levels. For me it seems to be worth it.

My preschool daughter loves Agnitus. We have the free version for our Ipad, I think there is a paid one as well. She loves playing it and it measures her progress and creates a report that I can see of what she has done and what skills she has been working on. It also gives her an age range she is working at for the day so I can tell if she was just playing or actually trying. I really like this app as well for her and would definitely recommend it.

Have a Blessed day!

One that is gaining popularity in my house is hungry fish. We curretnly have the free version, but will probably buy the other levels for $3. It is an interactive challenge to create the sum stated on the side of a fish that you may customize. It allows the youngest to have exposure to trial and error for addition facts and it offers a challenge to the ones that already know how to add on finding sums as the fish food disappears in the water after some time. itunes.apple.com/us/app/motion-math-

In my house we have electronic doodads. The kids love the ipod/ipad. I love putting educational apps on there. So here is a place to discuss some of your favorite educational apps. Try to include the platform it is on (android/ipad/ipod) app name, the cost of the full version, if there is a free version. If upgrading to the full version is a waste of money let us know.
