Martha Speaks Dog Party - This app can be used as an interactive lesson that the teacher can do with the whole class. It can be displayed/shared on the SMARTboard and allow students to come up to the front to participate. It can help children with saying a word and associated it to something for easy memory.
Solar Walk - This app can be used in a Grade 6 classroom to promote learning about the day and night cycles and seasons. Students can be given a particular day and time that they have to explore and collect facts and reasoning to answer questions. They can also search the videos for evidence on their answers.
Reading Rainbow - This app can be use during quiet time where the children are reading quietly to themselves. Providing children with headphones with this app is essential so they don't disturb others if they choose the read with me option. Instead of checking out library books in school children can access any book they want to on this app.
Candy Count - A Kindergarten teacher can use this app in her class to teach the basics of counting with materials. Use this app in a whole class discussion at circle time. Invite children to come up and help you count, sort, arrange and compare. This app can also be used for practicing during station time with Kindergartners.
