I love the current apps I use for my Kindergarten students, but I am looking for some fresh new apps that are appropriate for my grade. I use them in my classroom, but I also share them with parents to download at home as well.

I really like Motion Math's Hungry Guppies.

Plus, we've developed a single-digit addition app at Teachley called Addimal Adventure, and we've recently made it FREE.

It's a great app for late in the year Kindergarten or summer preparation for 1st grade. To make it easier you can set the devices to be "tool round only" and "easy" in the settings. In a few weeks, we're releasing an update that will let you create multiple student logins, so that the game will adapt for each student. You can download it here:

My personal favorite comes from StoryBots. They have a slew of apps, specifically for kinder-aged kids. The Starring You Videos and Books are very fun, as you can place your students in the stories and make them the star. Super engaging!

There's also a great new math game, which you can also place your students' faces in. It comes with a few different levels of difficulty to keep your students challenged.

All of the StoryBots apps are free for educators, too: http://www.storybots.com/educate
