The FREE apps below are ones I’ve already downloaded and can easily be uploaded from our account when we reset the iPads upon check-in. I am in the process of getting the app recommendations from the teachers who used them for summer preview. If anyone else knows of good educational apps, please send me an e-mail. Might as well have the resources handy instead of having to recreate the wheel each time we clear the iPads upon return . . . and get a jump on getting those apps that might have an expense included with obtaining them.
