Heads Up!
http://goo.gl/Tg6Cs
Heads Up! is a neat guessing game that works with players of all ages.
They way it works is that one player holds the iPad on their head, the app then displays a word for the other players to act out. The player with the iPad then needs to guess the word. When they get it right they tilt the app forwards (or pass by tilting it backwards).

The Novelist's iPad: 10 Apps for Writers
"The iPad's many uses include turntable, toddler flypaper, and bird catapult. But when you couple it with an external keyboard, it turns into a surprisingly versatile writing machine. Most writers are easily distracted; trying out just one more app often sounds better than slogging through your manuscript. To save you untold hours of procrastination, here's my current setup of ten apps for writing, drafting, outlining, editing, and generating story ideas, divided into five essentials and five remarkable aids for inspiration and creativity."

Learning to Write on the iPad

Learning to Write on the iPad
"Lots of people have been asking about using the iPad as a way of teaching young students to write. I personally would not advocate this as the primary way of teaching youngsters the intricacies of handwriting and letter recognition but as fun supplementary activity it might provide some motivation. Here are a couple of fun apps that reinforce some of the basic writing skills taught by parents and teachers. "

Book Creator
Click for review
Book Creator is an app that “finally” allows to anyone to create a book by staying completely within the iPad environment. It is an app that takes the concept of transformative teaching and learning to heart. I can envision many more uses for teachers and students.
The app is super intuitive! I was working on a book for my 7 year old niece (who lives in Brazil) in no time. It took me about 30 minutes to put together a book for her, publish in iBooks and email the ePub file to my brother…to open it up on his iPad…. for my niece to read it.
