Techy Teacher Tuesday #2

I would love for you to "steal" my image and link to me :)

Hi again friends!  I decided to keep it simple this week since we were out of school yesterday!  I wanted to share my Top Ten Math Apps.  As you all know, first graders' needs change immensely as the year progresses, so I may come back in a couple of months with a completely new set for you.  As you will notice from my app selections, fact fluency is a huge emphasis in the second semester!

10. Hungry Fish:
 Perfect to reinforce number bonds or addition in general!

9. Wings
 Lays a perfect foundation for multiplication for high kids and number sense in general for all students!

8. Bubbles
This free app creates a sense of urgency as students can practice addition or multiplication!

7. Top It
I love playing Top-it with cards and on the ipad.  This is a very well done app!

6. Math Bingo
Math Bingo has been a year long favorite for my kids (as has its reading counterpart Sight Word Bingo).

5. Montessori Numbers 
I LOVE anything to do with place value and this is an extremely well done app!

4. Missing Numbers
This great app required some higher level thinking, but is very easy for kids to navigate!

3. Bumpies
This app looks ridiculous, but the kids love it!

2. Splash Math
The variety of material covered by this app is extremely beneficial in terms of keeping learners on there toes!

1. Mathmeeter
And since we are ALL about automaticity now that we have the addition concept down, my kids are LOVING Mathmeeter.

I hope you got some ideas for your classroom or at home. 

Guidelines for entering Linky Party:
1.  Link directly to your blog post, not just your blog.
2. You CAN use an older post, it just needs to be about something techy (whether for blogging or classroom advice).
3.  Have fun!

I can't wait to read your posts!

  6. I can't say enough about how amazing your blog is! I used to be pretty jealous of classrooms that had IPADS in them :) but now I am going to be one of those classrooms. I am going to be the test "pilot" of my school to see the enrichment IPADS can bring to a classroom!

    I had a quick question about your technology policy that is in place at your school concerning the IPADS- do you have teacher technology policy for your school concerning the IPADS in your classroom? My school is trying to put together one and I was hoping to get some ideas concerning if the teacher buys the app but the IPAD is the schools who does the app belong to if the teacher and the school ever part ways or vice versa.

    Thanks for your weekly inspiration!
