Educational iPad Apps

We use a lot of technology in our homeschool. One of the things I like to utilize, especially if I need the kids to be working independently. There are so many great learning iPad apps to choose from so I thought I would list our favourites by subjects that they cover! If there are any apps you think I should add to the list just leave a comment below.

I am not sure if these are also available on other tablet operating systems other than Apple.
