Best K-3 apps

It's that time again..... school supplies are flying off the school shelves, the mornings are a little cooler and the drive inn starts at 9:45 (which means that sun has set pretty early in this northern town).   That little voice in the back of my head is telling me to start thinking about school but I have not let my foot step through my classroom door just yet.  How can I when we are finally getting the long awaited summer heat wave?!?!

I have let myself surf pinterest for some new ideas as well as all my favorite blogs.  I have stumbled upon some GREAT new finds!  I have ALWAYS loved Mrs. Malchow and I just have to share her fabulous post about her presentation of amazing K-3 apps.

Most of the apps are not new to me, but it is a great reminder of what I need to reinstall on my class ipads to prepare for my new batch of "firsties"!  That is going to be a huge job in itself since somehow this summer so many apps were deleted to make room for movies (to last the 8 hour vacation drive), candy crush (to support my addiction) and minecraft (to keep my kiddos quiet while they sat in the house during our 2 week cold spell).  

They are all there in my purchased folder - along with all my great new finds from Free App Fridays just waiting for this teacher to get back to work and get organizing.  This blog post was a start - the rest will happen on the next rainy day, or next week, whichever comes first!
