I just recieved 20 iPads for my Kindergarten classroom. I have been asked for a list of apps I would like to install on them. I have no clue what is out there. What are some good apps for K that you all are using? I'd like some letter formation ones, phonics, basic math, etc. Thanks!

You are so lucky!!!! We have ten to share with our whole elementary school. Right now I sign out 2 three times a week to use during my work stations. I would love to find some apps that are free or inexpensive.

There are tons of books that you can buy in the app store that read the stories to the kids. Look under kindergarten there are tons of them.
