If you only have one or a few iPads in your classroom, interactive story apps are great for stations and partner activities. Goodnight Safari is a beautifully illustrated interactive book that children can explore independently.
iPads are a great tool for content consumption but there are plenty of free iPad apps that help students create content too! Our Story for iPad lets users write their own stories using images saved on their iPad camera roll. Add text and record your voice for each page before sharing your final product as a PDF or zip file.
Penguin Leveled Reader is a wonderful bookshelf app for young readers. Students can listen to narration, read along, and manipulate the story. This app comes with one free text from each of the four levels offered and more can be downloaded with in-app purchases.
