Transform Your Classroom with Self-Grading Math Spiral Review

Digital Math Centers for Upper Elementary

Math stations or centers are an important component of Math Workshop. My students rotate through four centers each day: Math Facts & More, At Your Pace (independent work), Teacher’s Choice, and Hands-on. The Hand’s On station is my digital station. Digital centers are perfect for the classroom, but it can hard to decide what tools to use because there are so many different options. 
Before we talk about specific digital centers I want to talk about Google Classroom. Google Classroom has been a gamechanger in my classroom. It allows me to quickly and easily organize and pass out digital assignments. If you would like to read more about setting up Google Classroom click here.  
Here are five of my favorite digital center options: 

This site is great for math fact fluency practice. Many upper elementary students need to work on fluency to help with multi-step or multi-digit problems.

This website requires a membership, but it has a lot to offer. iXL has both a diagnostic tool and an unlimited number of questions for each math domain. I love using it to target specific math skills. 
Prodigy is a free online adaptive math game that integrates math skills into a wizard-themed role-playing game. Students are placed at a math level after completing a preliminary tutorial. Then, students work through math problems that increase or decrease in difficulty level based on how the questions are answered. 
There are many interactive resources available that work with Google Classroom and Google apps. 
Resources that are engaging for students and include assessment are my favorite. 
Using Google Forms assessments make grading quick and easy! Check out some Google interactive digital resources here
Boom Cards by Boom Learning are digital task cards. They are self-checking. Yes, you read that correctly. Students receive instant feedback as they solve and answer math questions. 
Teachers can access student data, too. Best of all, Boom Learning is an Academics’ Choice Awards award winner.
