Hi,
I posted this on the BusyBoard the other day and got two responses, hoping for more. In the meantime, I have compiled the following list, whcih includes those suggested by the two very thoughtful teachers who shared! Do you have any to add- it would be great to get a wealth of apps!Thanks in advance!
The first part is my original post, scroll down for the list of apps compiled so far:

I am a Reading Recovery teacher and am trying to fnd iPad apps that I may integrate into my lessons with my first graders as well as interventions with Kindegartners. Specifically apps that:

-allow student to sort letters that I have desiganted.Ideally with an option of more than one font and a mix of upper and lowercase

_ letter formation- for them to write themselves and other apps to trace letters- again, both upper and lowercase

_ apps that combine vowel sounds with visual to practice auditory discrimination

- allow students to write indeividual words- using a stylus or their finger- whatever

-left to right sweep, visual discrimination, 1:1 correspondence -maybe some gamelike practice

Anything else you think would help them learn! I am also very open to apps to recommend to parents to use to practice these skills at home in a more game-like manner.
Thanks in advance to all!!
