Homeschool iPad apps Part 2: Pages

Apple Pages for Homeschooling

20110503-073915.jpg
I was hesitant to purchase Pages for the iPad since I wasn’t sure it was worth it. I wanted an App to create documents. I also wanted to be able to make lines for copywork pages. In the end I bought Pages because I needed something to take notes at a conference I was going to the next day. I didn’t have time to search for different apps and I knew pages was rated well. Needless to say the it was worth it when I used it to take notes standing up during the standing room only first session I attended. Pages worked great for taking notes once I figured out how to outline.

Apple Pages is actually a pretty powerful document editor that can replace MS Word for most documents Homeschoolers may need to create. Ever since I had replaced my desktop computer a few years ago I have been without MS Office. One of the reasons I purchased the iPad was as an additional computer. Now for $10 I have a document creator App without buying Office. There may be some limitations to Pages but I believe for home applications Pages should be enough.

    • My five year old is a very active boy. Right now we are trying to focus on writing letters and learning sounds. Some of the apps we are using for that are Pocket Phonics lite, Alphabet tracing, AlphaWriter, AlphaBaby Free, ABC a Go-Go and TeachMe Kindergarten. To help with finger control we are also using the kids drawing app neuKidsDraw which is free. I hope to add more to my website soon.
