For students in our kindergarten and first grade classrooms, access to Apple iPads and selected applications, has opened up a new world of learning. While using iPads, students are motivated and engaged learning with apps that support and enhance our curriculum. Although the possibilities are endless, we want to share with our parents community some of our favorite apps. Clicking on the icon, will bring you to the iTunes page for each app.

If you have an app that your child enjoys and you feel would be beneficial for our iPad program, please don’t hesitate to contact Director of Technology Luke Callahan at lcallahan@bfccps.org.
