Scootpad

Scootpad helps personalize learning and accelerate student achievement. At this site, you can set up your class to do independent practice at the necessary level and on the skills they need to work on. If you don’t assign skills, it is a prescriptive site that
will advance the student through the skills at grade level at the student’s own speed.

Our students love this because they earn coins for correct answers and then purchase rewards set by their teachers with the coins. We have been using the free membership for a few years, but decided to do the paid one this year so we can take full advantage
of reports, ebooks, spelling assignments, etc.

Bitesize


Fun activities to help children at KS1 learn more about Literacy. This website is from the BBC so the characters have a bit
of an accent that can be odd for students at times. It does have many fun and worthwhile games in a large array of subjects in addition to language arts to play.
