Some I have used the app like desmos, khan academy, and photomath. The only one that I don't recommend to my students is photomath because they use it to get answers for the homework.

Thank you Monica! You gave me a ton of great ideas. I also use Toy Theater. They have math games as well as a ‘teacher resource’ section. The teacher resource section has a ton of virtual manipulatives. The ‘clock’ is one of my favorite. It allows you to individualize the clock, so you can take off the digital answer and play a little game with setting the time and then checking the answer. You can also make the hands different colors which helps with students recognizing the two clock hands. Another favorite on this website is the math bingo name. You can choose addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division and a speed level. It is really fun to see the confidence grow as students try harder levels on the speed. Everything is free, but there are ads on the side. You can also pay for a non ad version, but the ads are not distracting, so I just keep the free version.
Love that these can be used across different grade levels.
Love that they are free! Good resources!
