However, the website does serve students up to 12th grade. Check out the student checklists that can be found in my Teachers Pay Teacher store. Each checklist includes the power standards that students should master with 80% accuracy. When students complete all standards on each checklist, they receive a reward.

Math Apps for Kids #2

xtra math classroom

My second favorite math app for kids is  This is my favorite of the completely free math apps that my students use.  You can personalize a profile for each student choosing between, addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division.  Or, you can select a mixture of all 4. Students will earn a red, yellow, or green dot at the end of each lesson.  If my students earn a green dot, they receive a treat. I will also reward them with a homework pass if they consistently receive a green dot for two weeks.  Teachers have the option to send home sign-in information with students so they have the option to work outside of school and parents can track progress.
