Sumdog and Heads Up!

Haaapppy Friday Friends!!
Have you ever used Sumdog in your classroom?
Oh  my gosh, Sumdog is the craze in my classroom right now. It is such a fun way for students to build fluency of their math facts through several catchy and fun games.
Sumdog is a free math website with great interactive games for your students to play!! Teachers can sign up and create logins for all of their students. It also allows them to choose the levels for each individual student based on their needs. Teachers can also set up activities for them to complete. Students may also sign up and create an account so they can play at home. They collect points which allows them to buy clothes and other goodies for their character at the shop. Once they accumulate enough points, the students work their way up the ranks and turn into different animals. 
Here is an example of all of the games the kids can choose from:

My students are crazy about this!! They want to skip recess to play this game! The games are fun and relate to the kids. I hear comments from parents on how their children constantly want to play this game at home. I hope this resource is as helpful to your classroom as it has been mine. I have seen a positive difference in math fluency with my students, due Check it out when you get a chance.
Just a heads up!! My giveaway begins tomorrow. Stop by tomorrow and see all of the amazing bloggers that are participating in my "Totally Terrific 200 Follower Giveaway". I am SO excited!!! Now I'm off to put the finishing touches on my baby girl's birthday party for tomorrow. She's going to be 3 years old in a few weeks. Gosh time flies, doesn't it?

See you soon my friends!,
