Hi! Thank you for your wonderful app ideas! We enjoy tic tac toe (free), Paper Toss, Hangman, Temple Run, and Uno (only 99 cents). These are a mix of iPod/iPhone and iPad apps!

I love using Articulation Station. It is not free, but it is a great program. My younger students really enjoy it.

I really love the kindergarten.com flash cards for receptive and expressive language skills! Great for working on articulation and increasing vocabulary.
