My higher students like to do math puzzles, grid pictures and 100/120 chart hidden pictures. I also differentiate with Xtra math and math journals. I don't make it a habit, but periodically I assign...

morning message

I only do it the first 2-3 weeks of first grade. After that, it seems to be a waste of time for my students and myself. Sometimes I'll write one if something different is going to happen that day or...

You can also place icons to websites on your home screen. I use Xtramath.org on mine. They do have an app but I didn't want to pay for it and it works well enough from the website.
