The Educator's PLN

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.

I'm going to be training a few of our fifth grade teachers this year who will be sharing iPads for their classrooms. I haven't browsed through the wiki yet, but this link: http://teachwithyouripad.wikispaces.com/iPad+Apps has a plethora of iPad app info.
Need a "timeline" app that would take input of dates and events and place them in their relative position on a timeline.
