Digital Programs for Math
We have 2 main math learning platforms in first grade. HappyNumbers builds an individualized math dialogue and responds to students just the way teachers would: unpacking concepts step-by-step, scaffolding learning, and providing immediate feedback based on student inputs. It covers all of the first grade math standards.
XtraMath is a program used to increase speed and accuracy in addition and subtraction facts. Students review missed answers and are moved on to higher levels as they show mastery of their facts. There is a paid app for this program, but in class we have simply bookmarked the website on the home screen of our iPads. It looks and acts as an app would and does not have any ads, so we feel it is unnecessary to pay for the app.
