A Few Good Apps (elementary literacy edition)

Recently I had a request from a colleague for a few good iPad apps to support phonics knowledge, building words, and reading fluency for a young elementary student. After reading reviews and trying several out, this is the list I put together. I’ve added the links to some useful reviews and sites below. I would love feedback and more suggestions!
