I’m hoping to loan a new iPad Mini to my daughter’s 3rd grade teacher for the rest of this semester, so she and her students can create enhanced eBooks with some of the stories / writing projects they’ve been working on. Today I configured it with apps I’d previously purchased on my iTunes account, which I thought would be appropriate / helpful for the 3rd graders. (My daughters also added a few apps I wouldn’t have installed, including Netflix and some games.) Here are screenshots of the apps as I’ve organized them. Keeping in mind this is a 3rd grade classroom, what apps do you think I’m missing that should be added?
