|3||ClassDojo||With ClassDojo, teachers and parents help children learn important soft skills, such as grit, curiosity, and focus - for free! ClassDojo replaces classroom management tools and behavior trackers like gold-star charts, with positive feedback and parent communication. Teachers use ClassDojo to give their students instant, positive encouragement during class. Teachers choose and customize behaviors that matter most, and then award a student in class Dojo points when a skill is demonstrated. Best of all, teachers can engage parents with ClassDojo progress reports and instant messaging so they can stay involved in their child’s success at school. Parents can see how their child is doing in real-time, and chat with teachers easily and safely using ClassDojo Messaging. Teachers love sending broadcast reminders to all parents at once, but also private, meaningful communications like text messages, photos, and voice notes so that parents are connected to the classroom without the hassle of emails and school newsletters. Students can also create their own accounts, customize their Dojo avatars, and review their own performance for self-reflection while in school or at home. Unlike most classroom management organizers and class planners, ClassDojo can be used on any device: laptops, iPhones, iPads, tablets and phones, as well as smartboards - and its syncs seamlessly across all of them in real time! The ClassDojo Support Team is available around the clock if you ever need help, too!||--||Free||View In iTunes|

|5||Jumbo Stopwatch||Finally, a FREE stopwatch and timer for the iPad! This beautiful looking app not only functions as a stopwatch and countdown timer, it also runs in the background, so you can quit the app and come back to it later, without losing your time! In addition, this stopwatch displays hundredths of seconds, so you can time events very accurately. The stopwatch also has a 4 lap lap timer (after 4 laps, lap 1 is replaced by lap 2, etc.) so you can time lapped events! You also get Jumbo numbers, so you can read the time from across the room! The countdown timer even sends alerts to you if you're using another app at the time. As an added bonus, Jumbo Stopwatch works on the iPhone, just in case you need it there too! You can also choose to force the screen to stay on indefinitely, by touching the "Screen Turns Off" text, so the stopwatch or timer will stay visible at all times if you need it to. WARNING: forcing the screen to stay on indefinitely will drain the battery MUCH faster than letting the screen turn off! All in all, this is a perfect, and much needed addition to your iPad's app collection!||--||Free||View In iTunes|
