Learn Direct

Learn Direct allows students to type in their name and be a character in the book. On each page there are options for customizing the story. Students can adjust pictures and certain sentences in throughout the story. After students have customized the book it can be read online, saved as a pdf or printed out. Learn Direct also features a fun little virtual world where students can play word and reading games. Students have to solve word puzzles to navigate through the world.
Save as a PDF and upload to your wiki.

Math Sites

Johnnie's Math Page - Links to interactive math tools and activities.
Splat Square is a 100 grid that starts out blank. There are different "splat" colors on the right side of the screen. Choose a color and then click on the square, the number is revealed with a splatter of colored paint (Counting by 2s, 5s, 10s etc)

Math Doodles is a set of interactive math games that encourage students to think/interact with math. Students playi games like Connect the Sums, Number Jump, Polyomino Shift, Double Traits, Sums Stacker, Hydro Maze, Time Shuffle, and Angel Fish (coming soon).

Make 5 is a fun interactive tic-tac-toe type game (it actually reminds me of Connect 4). This game is a great way for students to practice math facts and to recognize relationships between numbers. Students are given a target number, they choose an equation on the grid that equals the target number. The goal of the game is to get 5 squares on the grid in a row in the least number of tries. The game has several play options; students can play the game with one or two players, set up the game to get 5 or 3 in a row, and can play to practice addition, subtraction, or multiplication.
