3rd Grade Websites I Can't Live Without

Hello darlings!  Amy here from That Teaching Spark!  If you are like me, you use some semblance of technology in your classroom.  You might be 1:1 with each student having a device or you may have access to a few devices for your entire class!

I'm lucky enough to have a class set of chrome carts to share with my grade level of five teachers.  We rotate the chrome books around to each other.  I also have four devices that I use for math rotations every day!  I have to admit, I would be lost without them!

There are so many amazing websites and resources out there!  I asked all of you in the All About 3rd Grade Facebook Group, to share the websites you use on a daily basis.  I have reviews those websites and have included the ones most often recommended in this All About 3rd Grade Symbaloo. A Symbaloo is simply a bookmarking site.  You can copy and paste this link on your classroom website, Google Classroom, or other learning platform for your students. Then students can click the icon to take them to the recommended page.

Most websites that I included are free or at least allow for a free version with less bells and whistles.

Here are 3 of My Favs

1.  Epic 

Epic is perfect for sharing books on your projector. It has over hundreds of popular books!  They have some books read aloud but I really like it for the nonfiction and collections that it offers.  You can even create quizzes for your students. Watch this video for a little overview. 

2.  Prodigy Play Math Prep
My kiddos use Prodigy everyday in math rotations.  I can assign them any standard I want and it will create questions for them.  This is what students see. They create little avatar wizards and then battle through lands that they unlock.  They even earn pets that can have powers!  They unlock and earn power ups by answering question correctly.  You can assign the skills or have the game do it for you!

In this video, I explain how to assign test prep, but it is the same directions for other assignments. 

3. Go Formative

This is a new website for me!  I am super excited to try it next year!
  • create online assessments, classwork or homework 
  • connects seamlessly with Google Classroom
  • create a class & track student data
  • students can type, draw or upload images
  • get LIVE results & give instant feedback to your students
  • very easy to use
  • FREE & PAPERLESS for both teachers and students
Check out the video for a sneak peek on how it works!
