There is so much creativity to be had with this app, you could virtually do anything you would like with it!
2nd Grade Math - https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/2nd-gra...
What am I? One of the most amazing FREE math apps you will find for your grade 2 students!!! Within the app there are hundreds of math work sheets based on the units of grade 2 math. The worksheets show up on the top half of your screen and then the bottom half is used for the students to actually write through and answer the problem.
How can students use me? If the school had enough iPads for a class you could easily put this app on each one and have the students work though the worksheets in a math period during school hours. You could even extend the learning to the home for the students by informing the parents of the app and if they have any apple products at home they could download for their kids.
