  1. I completely blew my budget this morning by purchasing an iPad Pro 9.7" for DD14. She's into drawing and this seems like a great price for the Pro. Here's a search link that should get you there if you are interested: http://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=ipad%20pro Unfortunately, even though they told me before the sale that the unit would be at the store on Christmas Eve, they reneged immediately after the sale. :toetap05: Still, for the price, I'll stick with it. Anyway, this price is lower than what you can buy a refurbished unit for from Apple as long as you are willing to
  2. Apps by Touchpress are on sale including: The Elements The Solar System The Orchestra Barefoot Atlas And their other interactive book apps. Most of these are usually 9.99, on sale for 2.99
  3. Hi there My youngest son is special needs and almost 11. He's finally able to remember most sounds of the alphabet and is interested in reading. Now that we're at lesson 34, he's really struggling. Has anyone found any specific apps that really help with OPGTR? I'm really trying not to panic, but I feel like I'm running out of time with him.
  4. My son has two prized possessions: one is Kitty whom he won on at Circus Circus in Reno, the other is his iPad he saved money For.Ev.Er to purchase himself. This morning he gave me his backpack while he ran back into the house to get something. The iPad was inside because we use it multiple times a day, especially for school. I got distracted, put down the backpack, and less than five minutes later ran over it with the car as we left the house. :driving: Ipad was obliterated. :scared: My super sweet Ds, bless him, gave me a hug and said, "It's okay, Mom," and graciously forgave me wh
  5. I need an ipad math app that will do something like flash cards for DS, particularly in multiplication. I'd like it to be fun, but also not so fun that he's lost in other areas of the app--they have Rocket Math, but spend more time building and playing with the rockets than doing the math. What have you used successfully?
  6. DD is 6 and finishing first grade. She works especially well with iPhone and iPad apps, which are also important b/c she has a vision impairment and these devices are more accessible for her. Am seeking recommendations on more apps, any area but especially fun reading apps. We already have Starfall, Reading Raven (ok), Eggy Phonics 1-2-3 (she liked but the 2 and 3 versions froze partway and she's been unable to finish them.) Any and all suggestions welcome! ::)
  7. I just discovered this game app for my new tablet (Samsung Galaxy) and I'm in love. It's a beautifully done puzzle type game called The Room. Reminds me of Riven or Myst, only on a smaller scale (it all takes place in one room with a series of boxes). Graphics are lovely and puzzles are fun without being super hard. The story-line is a bit silly. I could definitely do without that part. I guess the developers felt it was necessary, but I don't think so. I don't think I needed it to solve any of the puzzles. I just finished the first game and am doing the (free) Epilogue. I'll pro
  8. We are ordering our first iPad (an iPad 4) later this week. I am excited to have one. Now, though, I need recommendations for cases to protect it from my children! What are your favorite cases? Also, what are apps that you use regularly or ones that you like for your kids? Thanks!
  9. I want to make a schoolwork folder for each of the kids. I am narrowing down our (overwhelming number of) apps, selecting the most educational and age-appropriate for each child. The thing is, there are apps I want in all three of their folders. (And I'm married to this idea now, so this is very frustrating for me. :tongue_smilie:) Does anyone know if you can have multiple buttons for the same app on your iPad? If you can, how do you do this? (Please talk to me like I'm five. :lol:) If you can't, can I put individual PDF files in a kid's folder that automatically open up in Notability with
  10. My son is in Level 4. Things are going swimmingly, and he's gaining a lot of confidence and skill in his reading. But the new Barton tile app has sent me over the edge. It is a free app, but you have to buy each level of tiles you want to buy--for $30 each!! And, as with the wooden tiles, they will ONLY sell the tiles for the levels you have bought from them (which for me, is just Level 3.) They act like they are protecting the crown jewels when they are talking about alphabet letter tiles--they did not invent them!! I can't believe that if I were insane enough to want to spend $30
  11. My DH is interested in getting our family an iPad. He says he has read they can be really useful for homeschooling. This is our 2nd year homeschooling and we have an 8 year old, 6 year old & 5 year old. I know about getting Apps for an iPad (I do have an iPhone), but besides using Apps, I am looking for ideas of how an iPad can be useful for schooling/educational purposes. If you own one, how do you utilize it and what do your kids do with it? Also, what are the "must have" apps for the iPad that are helpful for homeschooling? What apps do you find good for educational purpos
  12. I found a nice little app called Syncspace. It requires IOS 5.0 or later. This app allows everyone on the same WiFi to link a whiteboard page. Everyone is writing on and seeing the same page at once. For example, if one is doing math, each kiddo sees mom write out the problem. Kiddo can then start to solve it on his on IPad while mom watches his progress on her IPad. This, to me, is much nicer than a traditional whiteboard because the view isn't obstructed by a body when someone is writing. Plus, I can walk off and fold clothes a minute while still helping my DD who is in another roo
  13. I haven't been the most ardent supporter of online texts in the past, but I just purchased the Holt McDougal World History: Patterns of Interaction ibook yesterday, and I like it. We were using Bulliet's Earth and It's Peoples for the last three months, but it wasn't working out that well. College/AP history books seem to have a lack of teacher support, no chapter questions, and no tests. While researching, I came across the site http://www.hmheducation.com/history/ibooks.php and decided to try out the sample book. I liked the sample chapter, but I researched teacher support materials firs
  14. I really, really want an ipad--all for school, of course! I'm convinced this piece of technology is absolutely critical to my children's education :tongue_smilie: So what should I get? And what is the most inexpensive way to get it? Can I use an educator's discount at the apple store? Or by one refurbished? I'm pretty clueless when it comes to shopping for electronic stuff, so please help me out.
  15. I was recently blessed with an iPad and I'm considering doing my planning on it. Right now I'm all paper because our computer is not convenient to the kitchen table where we homeschool. But all the erasing (or the paper and ink if I print it, which I often do) makes me crazy. Favorite apps. Mine are all littles btw, 4 and 5.
  16. Hi! I'm in the market for a thesaurus ipad app. There are a bunch of free ones and some with low costs. Are there any specific ones that your kids actually use?
  17. I'm looking for some type of WhiteBoard app that I can use at the same time as I FaceTime on my iPad2. A couple of friends and I will frequently FaceTime each other to help out the other's kids with math or other subjects but realize if we had a whiteboard application it would really be the icing on the cake. Is anyone familiar with something that would provide this function for us? Reg?????
  18. I need a multiple-timer app for my ipad, to keep track of timed courses or computer time, etc. for multiple students. Anybody have a favorite to share? Thanks!
  19. I am looking for your favorite apps for phonics and reading:001_smile:
  20. Help! I have an iPhone and over Christmas we got an iPad. I did the original setup, and the other day got a message that my free 5GB memory for iCloud backup is almost full. So...I took a look, followed instructions, and deleted back-up from certain apps so it would take less memory. All well and good, right? Wrong! I got the message that it was still almost full. So, I decided to delete the current back-up (the button for doing this was front and center). Done, good, it said I now had 5GB total and 5GB used. But then when I plugged in iPad and went to do back-up, it said NO! can't do
  21. I'm looking for a good vocabulary program for ipad, preferably good for grade 9 to SAT prep. It MUST include pronunciation, and hopefully it will track what the student has learned and not retest. The app store search gives over 150 options... Anybody on the hive want to save me some digging time and tell me what I really want? Thanks!
  22. We are beginning a study of Greek and Roman mythology. We are reading d'Audelaire's Greek Mythology, but I thought it would be fun to support it with some fun mythology learning/game apps. Can anyone suggest apps for the iPad or iPhone that help with learning and remembering mythology details? Our son is in 5th grade. Thanks!
  23. Please excuse me for cross posting, I haven't had any replies on other thread. We are beginning a study of Greek and Roman mythology. We are reading d'Audelaire's Greek Mythology, but I thought it would be fun to support it with some fun mythology learning/game apps. Can anyone suggest apps for the iPad or iPhone that help with learning and remembering mythology details? Just for fun. Our son is in 5th grade. Thanks!
  24. Can anyone recommend an ipad app for keeping track of assignments? I mainly need the basics: class, date, assignment. I don't need grades and such. It would be nice to have a little room for explanation, and if it syncs to an iphone or itouch that's a bonus. But mainly I want to be able to enter dd's assignments and have her view them by date. I have Homeschool Tracker Plus, but it's overkill for this. Edited to add that it doesn't have to be free; I am happy to pay for a good app, Thanks!
  25. Someone on the General Ed board asked the question,"Has the iPad revolutionized anything (or everything) about your homeschool?" I posted this response which I had been meaning to post on this board for awhile just in case someone might find it helpful. It has become indispensable for my dd (4th grade) who has a reading (and spelling) disability! Her level of independence has increased substantially and has allowed her to work on grade level. It has given me 2 hours of my day back! The best approach I have found to help her is to try to separate the necessary skills required for a task
