I searched and searched the internet for a cover I thought would be the best for my class to use.  I wanted a cover that covered the corners.  I also wanted to have a front cover so when I carry it places it is protected.  After all my searching I found Switch Easy Cara.  I love the design on the front of it.  It is a little pricey though, but if it protects the iPad, I it is worth it. 


Here is how I set up my iPads.  I have two pages set up.  I put the apps I want the students to use on the first page and then I put the rest of the apps in folders on the second page.  Here is a picture of the first page. The page the students would use. (I realized if I put too many apps for the students to do during their center, that they really were not learning anything because they would bounce around to the different apps.)


 The next picture is the second page.  The page that has all the folders set up.  My folders are Letters, Sight Words/Reading, Phonological Awareness, Math, Science/Social Studies, Books, Music, Friday Folder/Games, Mrs. Wolfe, and Productivity.  I made a folder for myself with the apps I use most often.


Here is a close up of my folders. 



I wish you good luck with your iPad.  I absolutely LOVE mine!!!  Everyday I find more and more apps that are so great!  What ones do you like the most?
