Happy "Appy" Saturday: Freebies for Your iPad!

There are so many great educational apps out there that it's almost impossible to keep up with them all.  I LOVE technology, but it can be overwhelming at times to know what and when to integrate it with your "pencil and paper" instruction.  That's why I did a little research for your classroom and mine!  The apps in this post are currently FREE (checked again this morning), though some are always offered as free apps.  I downloaded them too...but I haven't played them all yet, so I can't vouch for each one.  The descriptions and concepts behind each one, however, look like they'll be definite wins in your small group centers or daily practice work.
