Nesi's App Chat
in Newsletters from Teachers


 

This 2016-2017 academic year, teacher newsletters will feature “Nesi’s App Chat”, which will provide information about some apps you and your student can use at home. 

When choosing an app for your child, look for apps which are skill appropriate, fun and incorporate learning. Make some “house rules” of which websites or apps are okay for your child to use.  Write down these sites together and keep the list posted where everyone can find it. Filtering software is an easy way to help monitor which sites your student has access to and the amount of time they are spending online. 


  • ·        A useful resource for finding good apps is Common Sense Media . This website lets you sort by rating, skill, age level and provides helpful reviews.  


  • ·        Interesting graphics and backgrounds will help practicing writing skills fun! The My Story Maker website allows children to pick different animated components of a story and then write the details to support the animation. Use the My StoryMaker website. 


  • ·        The Jungle Time app is a fun and interactive way for children of all ability levels to strengthen time-telling skills. Download the app from the App Store for iPhones, iPads or iPads. (There is a fee of $2.99 to download this app.)


  • ·        For help learning letters and vowel sounds, try Build a Word Express- Practice spelling and learn letter sounds and names.  This app gives your child the options to learn, practice, test and then play games with words.  Download the app from the App Store for iPhones or iPads. (To access more words, you will need to purchase the app for $1.99.)



  • ·        The Coin Math app is a fun and interactive way to practice money skills for all ability levels. This app is available in the App Store for iPhones or iPads. (The cost for this app is $1.99.)


  • Sid’s Science Fair is a fun and interactive app where your child can learn science and math skills. Hosted by Sid, from the PBS show “Sid the Science Kid”, this app has three different science fair games to keep your child entertained and learning.  Use the PBS Kids website, or download the app in the GooglePlay for android devices or in the App Store for iPhones or iPads. (This app cost $2.99.) 

  • ·        Older students will enjoy POPGeo USA Geography. Your child “travels” across the United States, learning state names, capitols, national parks and major cities. This app is available in the App Store for iPhones or iPads. (The cost for this app is .99)
