SASK Apps: Elementary Reference/Academic Apps

Elementary School Apps This list is not exhaustive. It is a collection of apps that have been used by or made available to my own children and/or students. These would be available for trialing if funding for a Loan Device Program is ever secured in the future. It is also a work in progress and may be edited frequently as categories are expanded upon, or descriptions and/ or new apps are added.
