The personal learning network for educators
I am lucky enough to have a classroom set of iPads for my 5th graders. I have found some great apps (NumberLine, Ancient Egypt Brittanica, MyScratchWork, and iCardSort come to mind). But, I have been surprised by some of the things I can't find. It is entirely possible that I just haven't found them yet.
So, I thought I'd start an app wishlist of sorts in the hopes that what I or someone else wishes for another person has already found.
Here goes: I would like a good grammar app--not for ELL students but for native speakers. I want it to ask students to identify parts of speech, let them diagram sentences, and explain things like indirect objects and gerunds.
