HOT Apps 4 Literacy: Episode 10

This is a supplement to “Appy Hours 4 You” Blog Talk Radio Show: Episode 10 – “HOT Apps 4 Literacy“. In this episode we featured multiple game-like apps that supported English Language Arts content for both elementary and secondary students. Our focus was on how these game apps could be used to create purposeful instructional apptivities (e.g. what a task card and recording sheet might look like and what examples of extensions and follow-up apptivities would be.)

This week we discussed the following free apps:
