New Math App

After a late start to the school year and completely unexpected days off due to weather, I'm finally ready to begin implementing math work stations.  I'm really excited about the way my math work station board has turned out.  I have almost no extra wall space in my classroom, so I created an alternative way to display my work stations by using my SMARTboard rather than a pocket chart or bulletin board.  I've made 16 different themed management  boards, and I'll add my students' pictures to the empty squares today.  You can click on the link if you're interested in the boards.

I'm also really excited about a math app that I found last week.  This is the description from the app store "Splash Math is a fun and innovative way to practice math. With 16 chapters covering over 200 math concepts and an endless supply of problems it is by far the most comprehensive math workbook in the app store. All of the included problems are aligned with state standards for 3rd grade".

I've found this to be the most comprehensive math app by far, and I love that I can control what topics my students work on and that there are different levels of difficulty for each skill.  It is 9.00, which is a little more than I like to pay, but it may end up being the app I use the most.
