Play an instrument? You might like Sheet Music Direct’s updated iPad app - TNW | iPads in the classrooms | Scoop.it

"Sheet Music Direct, one of the leading distributors of digital sheet music, has introduced a number of key updates to its popular iPad app.

Version 2.0 brings in an app-wide favourites feature that lets you tag any score from the store or your library for easy access later. Items that aren’t yet owned by the user (i.e. in the store) will be marked accordingly, which essentially means this serves as a wish list."

As a potential Math teacher, this article was useful for math lectures and games.  One of the apps listed was a Team Umizoomi math game; as a babysitter for elementary age children, I know they like Team Umizoomi the TV show.  That is definitely an app that children can have fun with while they learn about numbers and operations.
