So this collection wasn’t as easy to curate as it’d seem.

It wasn’t a matter of simply choosing the best apps across content areas–math, science, social studies, etc. The title says “every iPad,” which seems to imply universal needs. Every. iPad.

Same with age and grade level, reading level, and gender. So we took at look at apps that could be used in any content area, and at (almost) any grade level K-5. (Phonics Genius likely wouldn’t be as necessary in later elementary grades as it might in K-3, for example.) The focus is on literacy, content, and play.

An argument could be made that elementary school students may be better served with an Encyclopedia app rather than Google Search. You almost may want something with a subscription as Brainpop has, or a slightly more child-friendly word processor than Pages. Substitute away!
