  1. Just downloaded the app. It looks great! Wondering if you knew how long of a subscription you get for free?? There was a section on there to subscribe. I skipped it and still seem to be able to use the app to its fullest!

  2. Kerry,
    Thanks for the heads up on all the apps. I am a teacher and you have found some wonderful apps that i have used in my classroom and the kids enjoy them.

  3. yvw Laura! Kelley actually brings a lot of these to my attention- she’s very good at finding some super-neat ones! SO glad you & your students are enjoying them!

  4. Hi Kerry!
    For once I know the app you’re presenting (does that mean I’m getting tech savvy, me??)!
    I’ve been using it for a couple of months with my kids and they really love it! I finally got my younger to read everyday – a MIRACLE!!
    Vicki, when you download the app you get two editions for free if I remember well, as far as we were concerned it convinced us to signup for the yearly subscription! Thanks Kerry for letting people know about this wonderful application!
