  1. Thanks for comment Jeremy! Please feel free to mention apps to me that I could add to the list.

  2. This is a great list. Mind Snacks has a new lower elementary vocabulary app out now. I also would add Toontastic to the writing section. The way it forces you to story board before you write is needed for so many kids.
