Best apps for end of the year kindergarten

Here are some of my favorite teaching tool* dock apps for use by most end of year kiddos. While not an exhaustive list... These are apps I feel improve on some more traditional activities, or they provide personalized feedback that I just can't do in a class of 23.
Apples in Hour Hands
Line 'em Up
Find the Sum

Park Math (not pictured)

Talking Memory 123
Montessori 100 Board

I teach the kids how to adjust the settings to make it harder if they are ready for it, and most love the challenge.

Preschool University's Reading Magic apps
Grasshopper's Little Reader and Little Speller apps (I personalize these a lot).
Word Bingo
Little Speller
Skill building spelling- this is great to target specific words for specific kids.
Pocket Phonics and Dot to Dot Number Whiz are good ones too.

This Is My Story

Writing...Story Kit, Kids Slate, Pen Board,

Misc... Teach me first grade

*Teaching tools should improve traditional learning activities by:
1.) saving time.
2.) allow for differentiation to meet each child's learning needs.
3.) motivating reluctant learners.
4.) make learning fun.


  1. Thanks for the suggestions. I teach high school English, but have a kindergarten daughter...these are great for her and have provided some great new practice in reading and math for her!

  2. Love your site! My question is where do you get funding for your iPads?
    I also teach Kindergarten but in county with very little funds.

  3. I am hoping and keeping my fingers crossed for an iPad! The apps are amazing for it. Thanks so much for sharing you list. I can't wait to try them out with my budding first grader. We have been using on our computer at home. There are tons of games and resources. I can even check his progress:)

    Thank you for your suggestions! I have a few of the ones listed and use them daily in my Kinder class! Try Reading Raven and Letter School for an awesome letter formation app for little ones, too! I have 3 iPads in my class, two of which I got through! My families donated a couple hundred and Chevron picked up the remaining balance and I received them within a month of posting the project! It couldn't have been easier!
