My name is David DOC Scholl and I work at Scarsdale NY and I am a huge fan of using the Ipad in the classroom. I've given a few seminars on Ipad in the classroom in my district and now have been offered to present to Westchester County. I am looking to gather more material before my seminar and would LOVE of anyone would share what apps they use in the classroom.
I have attached ONE of my list of IPAD APPS...I hope you find at least one or two that you can use in your classroom.

Katy....Thank you so much!
I thought more people would have some ideas....BUT yours is a GREAT START!!!!
I have found these interactive books very useful:
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore
The MeeGenius Kids Books
Scribblenauts Remix - my daughter loves this as it requires problem solving.
Thats only a few that were not on your list.
Check out this website from an Australian teacher: http://appsineducation.blogspot.com/
Hey Mark...thanks for the reply!
I have already booked mark the website and will take a look at it tonight.
Hope you downloaded my attachment with App that I have discovered.
Not sure how old your daughter is but the BEST ipad app for kids ages 3-6 is TEACH ME!!! Amazing!!!
the Teach Me apps look good for lower grades, my daughter is 11. I have just ordered 35 iPads for 3 of my schools and finding good apps is both hard and easy because there are so many, so it is helpful if teachers can share what they have found works in the classroom.
Not sure if you can access these outside of Australia but search for Education Services Australia and you should find 8 apps that they have converted from the Scootle learning objects website, that many of our teachers use.
