Moby Max - MobyMax is tailored to your child's individual needs, and I think you will be very impressed by how fast your child will excel using MobyMax.  The website features placement tests that accurately identify where your child excels, and where his or her "missing skills" are.  It then provides targeted instruction to "fill in" those missing skills.  Finally, it gives your child systematic review sessions that ensure that your child retains 100% of what he or she has learned.

Quiver - This one is a focus on Art, as it is mainly a coloring app. But... not just any coloring app - it is based on 3-D Augmented Reality! Once the app is installed on your electronic device, just print the free coloring page, color, and hold camera (or tablet) over the sheet and watch the magic happen! It really is amazing.
