With Back to School right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about which apps we want to download and introduce to our students in the first weeks of school. With so many incredible apps out there, how do we decide which ones to introduce first?
So here’s a list of MY must-have apps, which all happen to be free. Many of them can be used across multiple subject areas and grade levels, but I’m writing this post with my current second graders in mind.:)
Storykit allows students to create an electronic storybook. This was a choice during Daily 5 and we also used it to publish various books throughout the year. Students can choose to illustrate their books by drawing a picture on the screen, uploading their own image, or taking a photo of a paper illustration. Students can even record their voices reading the text aloud.
If your students need to work on sight word practice, you may want to download a couple of sight word apps, such as Sight Words: Kids Learn. You can check out my post about my favorite sight word apps here.
