10 awesome apps for K-6 literacy - The Cornerstone | Narratives through Fantasy | Scoop.it

"There are SO many incredible apps out there, and I know whatever list I come up with is going to be missing tons of great stuff. But I might as well start somewhere, right? So I thought I’d share 10 iPad and iPhone apps I love for helping elementary students with reading and writing skills. The majority of the recommendations below work with multiple grade levels and are free, but the paid ones are worth the investment, in my opinion."
