Favorite 5th grade Apps of the Year!

With state testing finished and only three weeks left in the school year, yes we are out by May 27 even with our snow days!  I have decided to have my class reflect on their favorite apps of the year! This has been very interesting because just like multiple intelligences there are multiple apps.  As we discussed the apps, I could have predicted which ones they love because of how they learn, their favorite subject matter and all the conversations we have had this year.  So drumroll please........

#1  Math Bingo
#2  Bookworm
#3 Tap Reef
#4  White Board
#5  Rocket Math
#6  Word Fu
#7  Google Earth
#8  Dictionary
#9  Pop Geo
#10  Sonic Pic

It was fun to listen to the students discuss their favorite apps and then have to choose their top 10 favorite.   I had the students write about how the apps helped them and I will reflect on their comments this summer!  I hope this list helps you if are considering iPods in your classroom or if you just have an iPod at home!


  1. I see EIGHT I need to get and spend time with this summer!

    I'd love a list of ALL of the apps you have on your pods, if you wouldn't mind.

  2. I will work on that list for you no problem.

  3. Also check out 5th grade splash math app by StudyPad. They are aligned to common core standards. one of the best feature is to assign homework to kids and let them know which worksheets they need to complete.

    Splash math is also available for grade 1 to grade 5

  4. Thanks for the suggestions! I will check those apps out this summer. Always looking for aligned apps to Common Core

  5. Great!
    Let me know if you need any promo code so that you can evaluate the app.
