100 Best Learning Apps by Subject

This post may contain affiliate links.

We love using our iPads to learn in our homeschool. I actually reserve a little time each day for learning games in our school time. You never know when you download an app if your kids will love it or hate it. I read the reviews before purchasing, but often there are not any reviews.  There are some apps that have really been well-loved and that my kids continue to use again and again.  Today I have a list of the 100 best learning apps by subject that our family has loved. My kids are all 5th grade and under so they are all elementary-level apps.
