      I use StoryKit with a student who struggles with fine. Tool skills to transition him to handwriting -we use for writing and for other work requiring writing, we also use Teach Me K when work at workstations is complete and we use RAZ kids for ebooks. I use for planning and tracking CCSS, I use to track student progress, ESGI for assessment and CC Pensieve for conferring notes and tracking.

            Each of my students have an ipad this year. Students use ipads during literacy centertime as well as specific whole group lessons. My student read Reading AtoZ books during rest time. I teach all-day kindergarten. Our district is only allowed to use the free apps but there are many to choose from.

              Another teacher recommended rocket speller on another similar post. It's a free app with purchase option to get more advanced options.

                I love the Puppet Pal app for my grand daughter who is in Kindergarten. She loves recording a new show each time she visits.

                  StoryBots is a great resource for the classroom. You can insert your students' faces in the apps. My favorite is Starring You Books, which makes your students the stars of the stories, full of cute animations and sounds -- it's really engaging. There are also fun and catchy ABC videos, and learning videos with series about time, the body, and more. Educators get free access:

                    "Explain everything" is excellent! We use it for 1 to 1 with 5 year olds.

                        I use many of the same apps as Victoria mentioned above. I bring out 4 iPads during our literacy centers time and set students up using a specific app that targets their individual needs. My students then use the iPad for about 10 minutes at a time.
