December 1, 2010 iPad for Parents Group meeting Application list

During our December 1, 2010 Meeting, a parent presented a number of apps she uses with her child. She has put the following list together. As we add the each app to our own database i will hyperlink them to this list so you can rate the apps, add your comments and tell us how you are using them individually. Here are a few apps:

For fun:


  • Dice (Great for games like Yahtzee, or where you need a spinner)
  • 100’s Chart (This is useful when wanting to point to an answer.)
  • eduDice (beginning to count and adding)

  • Math Series
  • Monkey Preschool Lunchbox
  • Kindergarten Pattern Recognition


  • Cat in the Hat
  • Jack and the Beanstalk by Ayars Animation
