In lieu of a *real* post...

I give you links. Because I had words with my husband last night, and only got 2 hours of sleep. School will be FUN today! :not:

So that I can rein in my addiction, and share the love, I give you links to eBay:

Teaching Company DVDs on eBay


Teaching Company VHS on eBay

Apps we have and use (bear in mind that we are an all Apple family, so I have the iOS version of these. I tried to find Droid links for this....but am brain-dead. Please forgive me!):

DVD cataloguer for iOS devices - I'm sure there's something similar for Droid, but my brain, it isn't working so well. :sigh:

Pocket Universe for iOS devices; it's OK, but the next one is better.

<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/myboxoffice/id317039484?mt=8">DVD cataloguer</a> for iOS devices - I'm sure there's something similar for Droid, but my brain, it isn't working so well. :sigh:

<a href="http://www.craicdesign.com/">Pocket Universe</a> for iOS devices; it's OK, but the next one is better.

<a href="http://starwalk.mobi/>Star Walk<a> - I have it for iOS, but it looks like they have it for Droids, too! It's FANTASTIC!

<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cloudysky/id443064526?mt=8">Cloudy Sky</a> for iOS. Shows the various types of clouds and gives info on them. It's not interactive, it's just clouds with descriptions. Nice...but not a Must-Have.

<a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.innovativelanguage.wordpowerlite.hebrew&hl=en">Word Power Hebrew</a> - this is the Droid link; I have the iOS version, and it's not bad, especially since you can get a free version. It's not going to have you speaking like a native, but it's a good way to get familiar with the language (and they have TONS of languages, not just Hebrew)

<a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.freeridedev.android.funnydotsabcheb&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5mcmVlcmlkZWRldi5hbmRyb2lkLmZ1bm55ZG90c2FiY2hlYiJd">Hebrew Alef-Bet app</a> for Droids. Again, I have one for iOS, but....I know a lot of y'all don't have Apple love like we do. :wink: This one isn't by the same people mine is, but...it's flashcards. Not much you can do to mess them up...(the app I have is by Sarah and David, if you want to hunt for it in the Droid market. I like mine better, but it drives the kids batty. :heh:).

<a href="http://dan-russell-pinson.com/2011/06/19/presidents-vs-aliens/">Presidents vs. Aliens</a> Developer's website/blog. I have this, Stack the States, and Stack the Countries - this guy is good! I noticed that Presidents vs. Aliens has been released for Windows, so it might be out for Droid - if so, grab it (and the others!) These apps are FANTASTIC - they make education a ton of fun! Seriously - in PvsA, you "fling" Presidential heads at invading alien armies...and it's TOO much fun. :snicker: Especially when the President gets an Alien Infection...:lol:

Gotta run - the caffeine has kicked in, and I need to get school done. I have more apps (umm...lots...) but these are the ones we play with a lot. Of all of them, I'd hunt for Star Walk and anything by Dan Pinson. The rest are cool, but those are the "biggies" here.
