iTooch 2nd Grade

*** Only the app's developer can control when and app is free or not. All apps we post as free are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. ***
There are links to email and social media, but they open within the app. The links do not take you outside the app.
The apps are set at a high level and can be challenging.  It is suggested that the app be completed with an adult, if the child is not able to read independently yet.

From iTunes: (1st grade description, but the 2nd grade app is in the same format with the same iTunes information)
Important notice: The content of the iTooch Language Art Grade 1 course and activities might be perceived as too difficult for a 1st Grader, especially at the beginning of the schoolyear. We advise that parents or teachers assist the student if they are not at ease with reading and abstract concepts. This level of difficulty was imposed on us in order to comply with the Common Core State Standards.

With more than 4,500 exercises, iTooch 1st Grade is a new and fun way of practicing and learning Math and Language Arts for 1st Graders.
It is, by far, the largest collection of educational activities based on the US National Common Core Standards on the App Store.

Used by more than 1,000,000 users, iTooch apps are a full learning solution which helps parents, teachers and students to identify and address their learning needs in a fun and motivating way.
‣ iTooch 1st Grade is intended for schools and districts: it is eligible for the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) for educational institutions. We will offer you special pricing for purchases of 20 apps or more.

‣ You can evaluate iTooch 1st Grade before purchase, downloading iTooch Elementary School, which provides free access to an extract of the same content.

‣ "This app has been everything I was looking for. Multiple question types including decimal points and word problems. The ability to test the learning. And here's the kicker: it is so much fun, I had to pull my 5th grader off of it after 2 hours!"
