Here’s your chance to get an iPad for $100 off! The new iPads came out today (or at least you can pre-order them today), so Apple is selling the iPad2 for only $399! I love my iPad2 so much that I’m not even considering getting one of the new ones!
I use it every day for reading e-books, email, blogging, social media, and education. On trips, it’s invaluable for maps, finding restaurants, checking the weather, and keeping the kids entertained with movies and games. (My iPad has 3G.) Check out my category Apps for Homeschool to see how we’ve used it for preparing for the Bible Bee and Geography Bee, as well as extra practice for math, history, spelling, phonics, etc. I love it for exercising–I watch my T-Tapp videos on it and can exercise in any room in my house or when I’m on vacation! It’s also great for homeschool planning–I put my curriculum from CurrClick on it.
I read magazines (like my favorites The Old Schoolhouse and Answers). We watch educational YouTube videos and read classic books on my iPad. I love reading the Bible using the reading plans through the YouVersion app. And my boys have a wonderfully creative time making movies and stop-motion with their Legos!
Yes, it may be time for you to get an iPad!

When I started this series on homeschooling moms with apps 3 weeks ago I had no idea an incredible new website would burst on the scene last week. It’s called Apps for Homeschooling. Jennifer shares reviews, codes for free apps, and insider information about sales. It’s great! I’ll keep writing these posts to share what we like to use, but for more comprehensive information on great apps for homeschooling, be sure to visit Apps for Homeschooling!
This week we’ll talk about math. The iPad is a wonderful tool for practicing math facts, and there are some really neat math apps out there. Here are the ones my kids enjoy:
Dot to Dot Numbers and Letters
And these are some math apps I’ve heard good things about but haven’t looked into personally yet:
Match up Math
Pop Math lite
Math Girl Number Garden (and House)
Digit z lite
Kids Time Fun
Trade First Subtraction
Do you have some favorite math apps I missed?
