Another very helpful online tool for math and science is:
www.solpass.org

How to log in - Once at the website choose elementary then start typing kilby and a drop down book will appear with school choices.  Choose Kilby and the password -- all lowercase is kilby.

IXL is a great resource for math.  Students also have access to language arts.  I can track student usage and see what skills they are working on.  I have starred skills for them to practice.  The goal is to reach a smart score of 80.
