Apps at School: Finds for Preschoolers!

Published January 22, 2014 1:15 PM by Alexandra Streeter
I continue to love working in preschool again, and am enjoying using the iPad with the  younger set.  A couple of months ago I shared some of my favorite apps, but I have some new discoveries I would like to add!

I mentioned Sago Mini's "Doodlecast" before, and continue to enjoy using it with the little ones. I was delighted to discover Sago Mini's "Ocean Swimmer" and "Forest Flyer," two apps in which children guide the action while exploring surprises and little adventures. My students love commenting and discussing the surprises they find along the way.

There are lots of opportunities to ask/answer questions, and create little narratives. Check out Sago Mini Sound Box; young children can play with a variety of sounds and animations, and Sago Mini Bug Builder, in which they create cute bugs and bring them to life.

The Sago apps are found in the ITUNES APP store, and range in price from free to $2.99!  Your littlest students will love them.

Many of the Sago Mini, as well as other great educational apps can be easily found for free if you use the app "appsgonefree."

I got Forest Flyer for free one day in December. The kids loved it!
