Digital Tools for Math

I’ve attended more TCEA conventions than I can count, but TCEA 2016 was one of the best I can remember. The sessions I attended were top-notch, the vendor floor was massive (as usual) and the weather was THE. BEST. EVER.

The only downside of a really great convention is that there’s simply not enough time to see every presentation you want to see. Fortunately, most of the presenters shared their files online for anyone and everyone!

Joan Gore and Janet Corder are EdTech Superstars and their classes are always big hits. Although I wasn’t able to attend this session, they’ve published a fantastic list of Digital Tools for Math. Be sure to check them out!

Scroll through the list below, or click here to visit their Smore in a separate tab.

Crickweb – Free Online Education Resources & Games

Looking for ways to get your kids excited about learning? Crickweb is a fantastic collection of educational interactive teaching resources and activities. If you have an Interactive Whiteboard or Projector, let the kids take the controls and watch them learn. If you do not have an Interactive device, no problem! The activities and games are just as fun and beneficial when using a computer mouse!

Their resources are organized into Early Years (PK-K), Key Stage 1 (1st-2nd grades), and Key Stage 2 (3rd-6th grades).
Don’t forget to check out the Fun Games and Links sections of the site. Be sure to check the activity first because of the terms this site uses aren’t exactly the same ones we use on this side of the pond, and some activities might be confusing. 
What’s your favorite Crickweb activity?
