These apps are the best teaching apps I’ve found so far on iTunes®. I use them at school and during tutoring sessions. You’ll need to click on the buttons to open the links. Each link will take you to the iPad® or iPhone® download.

MATHS ROCKX – If you’re going to buy one maths app, make it this one. Kids love singing their times tables along to the tune of well known songs. This app is worth every single cent of the $15. We all know how critical times table recognition and recall is. I cannot recommend the iPad and iPhone apps enough.

TIMES TABLES QUIZ – This iPhone and iPad app is brilliant. I find that kids are more excited about times tables when technology is involved.

TEACHER RESCUE APP – The Teacher Rescue app is one of the first apps I actually paid for. I use it as a relief teacher and when on contract. It’s so helpful. I’d highly recommend it to every teacher, especially newbies. It’s a life saver! Download the iPhone only version here.

HOPSCOTCH (CODING) – I discovered these Learn to Code app and the Hopscotch for Schools App at Edutech. Be warned, it’s addictive. I spent hours and hours on Stick Ninja!Download the iPhone Learn to Code app here. Download the iPad Learn to Code app here and the Hopscotch for Schools app here.

JOLLY PHONICS – Used and loved by so many schools and students. These are well worth the upfront cost. I use mine all the time. Download the Jolly Phonics Letter SongsJolly Phonics Lessons and Jolly Phonics Letter SoundsJolly Phonics Letter SoundsJolly Phonics Songs and Jolly Phonics Lessons here. You’ll need to open the links to select which version you’re after.

FRACTION BASICS – The Fraction Basics apps are brilliant. The two versions allow you to use the app on both devices. Kids love apps and it helps to ‘hide’ learning at home. This is one I recommend to parents a lot.

5 DICE – An electronic dice game kids love. Download the iPhone and iPad versions.

DICE – No more dice rolling on tables during quiet time. I’m all for hands on activities. I love that these two iPhone and iPad apps provide a quiet option for fast finishers.

IDOCEO – iDoceo is brilliant. Think checklists, roll books, timetables, grades and planning. adduce has everything you need for planning in one handy app.

PIC COLLAGE -I love the  Pic Collage apps. Colour printing photos is expensive. Run them through the app and print from your iPad. I love how easy it is to print lots of pictures on a budget. iPhone and iPad versions available via the links.


DROPBOX – This one technically isn’t an educational app, but Dropbox app for your iPad and iPhone will become essential once you realise how easy it is to edit, save and upload/download while on the go. I use pages and sync everything together. I can create invoices on the run. I can’t live (business wise) without it.

SPELLING CITY – My school kids loved the Spelling City website. The iPhone and iPad apps look great too.

TEACHER KIT – Time management and activity management in one handy iPad and iPhone app.
