Just last week I had the brilliant idea to have one of my student jobs be turning on the computers. This fulfills one of my professional development plan (PDP) goals, and it eliminates one thing I have to do in my classroom every morning. Currently, my students keep their classroom job until I decide it's not working and something needs to be changed. So right now, my "computer programmer" plugs the lap tops in and turns them on.
I try to use the computers on a daily basis to type spelling words and letters, use iXL.com, practice reading sight words, playing rhyming games, etc.

My school is working to incorporate RtI groups at every grade level. This is my group of kids and our Intervention Specialist's group of students working on math games.
As a Special Education teacher I work with a wide range of ability levels. Some of the rhyming, phonics, and sight word games can be used during Daily 5. Here are some of mine and my students' favorite online games.
Good math practice for pk-6!!
Make sure to keep scrolling for the one above! I didn't realize there were math games!
I haven't tried this one yet, but I want to soon!
Hope you find something you want to use in your classroom!
