6 iPad Friendly Websites for Elementary


While there are a ton of great apps for iPads, accessing websites from an iPad can result in a little less user friendly. Most of the time it seems like our favorite websites have built apps to address that very issue, however sometimes it’s nice to be able to stick with the same website layout you are used to. Having everyone on the same website regardless of their type of device can be very helpful logistically as well. Here are 6 great websites for elementary students that are easy to use on an iPad so your classes keep running smoothly!

Suggested Sites

  • Brush Ninja
    • This is a simple animated gif creator. You can also make comics, photo collages and retro style pixel art with their emoji art page. Built to be accessible to as many people as possible, Brush Ninja is free and private and suitable for people of all ages.
  • Digipuzzle
    • This is a great place to send your early finishers, with puzzles that range from silly to mind-bending and include such classics as sudoku and tangrams. There is also something to challenge everyone from kindergarten to upper elementary.
  • Toy Theater
    • A collection of interactive educational games for your elementary classroom designed to work on desktops, tablets and mobile devices. The site has math, reading, art, music, puzzle and game categories as well as a section for teacher tools.
  • Sheppard Software
    • Hundreds of educational games, quizzes, articles and more. I particularly appreciate the wide range of skills their games cover, rather than many educational sites that seem to be stocked with endlessly re-themed ways to practice just a handful of skills.
  • Word Art
    • Word clouds provide a fresh way to study vocabulary, respond to learning, or brainstorm. Be sure to encourage your students to utilize the shapes, font and color features to take their word art to the next level.
  • Educandy
    • Teachers can create interactive learning games in minutes. Download the Educandy Studio app and enter the vocabulary or questions and answers and Educandy turns your content into engaging interactive activities. You can create interactive puzzles using Educandy and have students access them with a code without needing to use the app.
