Welcome to my Flyer! In case you wondered what I looked like, here are a few pictures from my volunteer trip in South Africa.

Apps in the Classroom

This flyer will be profiling five apps that will be useful for children at an elementary level. It will not only provide the app, but a description, video and a link to be able to download it.

Lola's Math Train

Lola's math train is a great app for elementary and pre-elementary aged children. It allows them to practice simple math like adding and subtracting. In this app, you are able to choose the level at which you work, and as you go, it will self advance. It seems like a great game that enables kids to have fun and learn at the same time!

Lola's Math Train - Interactive and educational game for kids


This app, suitable for elementary students uses simple physics to allow students to practice their logistical thinking in order to build simple structures. Students can build virtual things like bridges using "popsicle sticks" without the mess! This app could be useful in science classes as well as a thinking game while at home.
