  3. My second graders like Magic Tree House books. I like them as it won't take weeks and weeks to finish one and they are fun to read.

  4. My second grade nephew and I played (?) Talking Angela together...absolutely no educational value, but kept us entertained.

    I need to find educational apps, as we might get some iPads for school.

  27. It's hard to pick just one app, but I'd say Bluster. It's free, the best kind! :) My kids love to play the team format. It practices synonyms, antonyms, rhyming words, prefixes, etc.

  31. I don't have an Ipad, personal or for school. I teach in a rural 76% poverty school. I love my kiddos and they are are awesome little learners. They enjoy hearing any of the Gooney Bird Greene books. It really inspires them to become writers.

  39. I've heard that Dojo is incredible! I'm not lucky enough to have one yet...I'm thinking I should ask for one through Donor's Choose. Have fun with your new ipad! Don't you wish every student could have one :)

  41. I LOVE to read aloud The Best Worst School Year Ever (and the rest in the series) by Barbara Robinson as well as Frindle.

    The children enjoy playing Multiplication (by Sierra Skyware). We're lucky enough to have iPod touches and iPads in our classroom and the devices link up over wifi with this app so the kids can battle each other from across the room (or even kiddos in neighboring classrooms).

  42. I love doceri to use in my classroom. It makes my projector function like a smartboard! I just write on my iPad and it displays automatically.

    For read alouds, I loved reading "Chasing Vermeer" to my darlings. It was above their level, but having it read aloud to them really helped them to follow along. It was great!
