There are lots of apps in the Apple app store. Sometimes it is very hard to find an app for a specific purpose. Over the next few weeks I will be highlighting some apps that are aligned specifically to meet Common Core Standard objectives.
A complete alignment of apps can be found in the Common Core section of this website. In particular Kindergarten math applications here: http://www.mrcross.org/common-core-standards-alignment/mathematics-k/ While my project to align apps to the Common Core is far from complete, over the next couple months there will be significant work done to help teachers everywhere use technology more effectively through these lists.
For this first post I would like to highlight three math apps for counting to 100 by ones and by tens.
This is a very basic free app for kindergarten counting. It assosiates the number with an image and allows students to visualize the numbers when they click on them.
This is a great little free app that uses the Hundred Board to get students to sequence numbers by finding them and counting along.
This next app is all about drawing your numbers.
