I want to share with you two great online resources I recently learned about. This first site is no doubt going to become one of my FAVORITE free websites for math, spelling, sight words, and phonics. Arcademic Skill Builders is totally FREE, and with Arcademics Plus teachers can upload class rosters and actually track student progress. This company is totally committed to adding more games and functionality to their product, so visit often to see what's new! They also have an iPad app!
If you haven't checked out Thinking Blocks, you will definitely want to. One of the great features is the Watch Video component. It's like having your own model-drawing tutor, so if you are a little foggy on how to draw models to teach the CCSS way of doing things, it's for you! One note, while you can choose the range of numbers you want to use, the smallest range is 0-50 so it might not be a good fit for Kinder or beginning of the year 1st Grade, but definitely worth checking out. Get in there and play around with it!
