I like http://appsforhomeschooling.com/, but she recently had a baby. For now, I'm checking http://www.smartappsforkids.com/free-app-of-the-day/.

Re: ipad apps?

My 6 year old is profoundly autistic and really learns well from the ipad since he can repeat the app over and over until he's mastered it. So...I keep this mega list of ipad apps since people ask me about it often. I will try to take out some if I don't think they will apply and I'm copying it from Word so it always looks a little funny. If you have any questions about particular apps let me know

Re: ipad apps?

Thanks, Suzi! That is quite the list. I was thinking about getting the Super Why app, but it's a little pricey (as apps go), so I''m glad it's good enough to recommend!
