Real-life Math Projects! There are seven very practical math based projects on this site, like planning a summer party or a family field trip!
A Plus Math Flashcards Fact Monster Ascend Math MobyMax These online sites have flashcards for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It is imperative that students are fluent with their math facts, so the more practice the better!
Of course, you can also practice using a deck of cards. Drawing two cards at a time, your student can add, subtract or multiply the numbers. (It does not work well with division.) It is fun to play as partners - similar to the game of War!
Math Jenga You will need a Jenga set and some small stickers, but this looks like a fun way to practice math facts! The directions show addition and subtraction, but I suggest playing with multiplication, division or simple equations, such as 45 / N = 9.
Math Dominoes You will need a set of dominoes, but there are several ideas to practice decimals and fractions with dominoes on this link!
Area Dice Game This looks like a fun and challenging way to practice area! You will need a pair of dice and graph paper.
Fraction Bingo You will need the downloadable sheets on the link, but this would be a fun review of fractions or even better reviewing equivalent fractions!
TenMarks (You will need to set up an account using the "New to Tenmarks" link in the upper right corner. Once you do that, it is a FREE resource!)

The best way to utilize this FREE online resource is to review your child's NWEA scores for weakness or areas for enrichment. Again, I can help with this...just send me an email.
Prodigy App This is not a link. If you have a device to which this can be downloaded, this is a math game option! The kids have played it this year, and most liked playing!
Mental Math This is also an app and is great for math fact fluency! I cannot stress how important it is to know important it is for students to KNOW THEIR MATH FACTS:-).
Buzz Math This resource can be downloaded as an app or used on a PC! The students will need my class code, which is 2F7F-26F6, but the resource is FREE!
Readworks This resource provides short passages with accompanying questions. You will need to create a FREE account to utilize, but it is a pretty user friendly resource. One of the nicest features is that your student can work on grade level with this source or at his or her lexile range. (See the NWEA report for your student's current lexile range.)
Newsela This resource is similar to the Readworks site in that your student can work at his or her lexile level. The cool part about this site is the kids can read about current news related events. You will have to sign-up for an account.
Epic This site allows you to access thousands of FREE online books! I have sent an email invitation for this resource to your student's gmail account. Please email me if you need assistance with this cool source!
Independent Reading... Read 150 or more minutes a week! Use the lexile range on your student's NWEA report, as well as the AR lexile levels from quarter four.
LANGUAGE ARTS IXL The kids have used this with Mrs. Souza this school year. I am not certain if they can login from home, but there is a guest option that allows them to practice/enrich their skills!

My Storybook Storybird StoryJumper Voki Students can create their own digital stories on these sites! They can choose their characters, setting, and topic. Children have many opportunities for creativity, as they can change the setting and add details to their stories. Students can preview before they print and share their stories.
While Voki is generally thought of us a speech software program, it can also be a writing tool. Students can type in their writing and their avatar will “read” what they have written exactly as is.
Grammar Games Interactive Writing and Grammar These two sites' games are a fun way for young readers and writers to practice phonics, basic grammar, spelling and sentence structure. The games are from a variety of educational websites!
