Today we are featuring two apps that my Speech Therapist suggested I download last year to help my kids learn the correct use of the pronouns I & me and for categorizing and vocabulary building.
We also have four Core Curriculum apps that are lite versions which contain one subject filled with heaps of content. For instance the Science subject comes free in both the First Grade app with the option to purchase other subjects. They are easy to use, customisable and all prompts and words are spoken. These are great apps and well worth trying out for free.
** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. There are in-app purchases available in the some of the apps below. In-app purchases can be disabled via the Settings of your device**

Separately, each deck is $2.99 (on sale at the moment for $1.99). ALL DECKS include DATA TRACKING for monitoring student progress.
Each of these educational apps from Super Duper Publications introduces and teaches students 100 core curriculum words they need to know across four subject areas (Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Math) to experience success in the classroom. Each deck also includes four entertaining games that reinforce and motivate students to learn the vocabulary.
